After drooling over Strudel’s Pumpkin Breakfast Bread, I abandoned my use of butternut squash and decided I wanted to make something this week with pumpkin too! These pumpkin streusel bars come together easily and fill the house with the smell of pumpkin and spice.
The base of these bars is the other half of the Pâte Sucrée I used for the butternut hand pies. These bars are thick and sweet with a tender streusel topping that makes it hard to stop at one bar! Speaking of streusel, here’s quite possibly my favorite streusel-y recipe ever that’s ALSO great for fall… amish cake.
Strudel and Streusel are two friends living in different cities, sharing a love of baking (and butter) through this blog. With Streusel in Denver, and Strudel in Seattle, we've found our little site to be a great way to stay in touch, share recipes we love, and talk about experiences in our respective cities.
