I don't know how Thanksgiving crept up on us so fast, but ready or not, here we are. Don't even get me started on holiday shopping, because I haven't even begun to think about that yet. If you see me next month making a mad dash for the gift card rack at Target, just mind ya business. These days, everything is getting done in little spurts when I can squeeze what needs to be done in the nonexistent time that I have. That's why I love make ahead recipes, like these Pumpkin Honey Pie Bars from Golden Blossom Honey. When I'm in between dealing with the million little things that are piled on my plate this time of the year, I appreciate having a recipe on hand that doesn't need to be made and served right away. 
 
 
But, Theresa, what's the difference between this and a traditional pumpkin pie you ask? Honestly, not much except it is sweetened with honey instead of condensed milk and it has more servings than the pie, thus saving you time from having to bake more than one pie. Plus, who doesn't like dessert bars? I know I do! The only thing I changed in this recipe is I did double the crust portion because I felt like it just wasn't thick enough for my liking after I pressed the crumbs into the bottom of my prepared pan. Other than that, I left everything else as is and thought it turned out perfect. After bellies have been stuffed with all of the Thanksgiving trimmings and everyone is making the comment that they couldn't possibly eat another bite, watch how fast the forks come back out when you present this dish for dessert. My only rule this year is "if you don't talk politics, you get pie!" Or in this case, delicious pumpkin honey pie bars.
