  • Williams and Sonoma samples

    Went into Williams and Sonoma yesterday to browse. I never buy anything in there--too expensive. But I do like looking and seeing their seasonal displays. Yesterday they had samples of Pecan Pumpkin Butter Dessert Squares. TO DIE FOR!!!!!

    The jar of pumkin butter (an ingredient) was $9.50. Can't believe I spent that but it is so good.

    I am going to try and see if I can find a copykat recipe of it. The rest of the ingrdients you would have at home.

    Try it if you can. I would give it 5 stars!!

      1 pckg yellow cake mix;set a side one cup
      1/2 cup butter melted
      3 eggs, large
      1 jar muirhead pecan pumpkin butter
      1/8 cup milk
      1 tbs. flour
      1/4 cup sugar
      1/4 cup butter, softened
      1 tsp cinnamon

      Note that they use Pecan Pumkin Butter. I have had pumkin butter before. This tastes different. I don't think it would have the same flavor if you used the regular.

      preheat overn to 350F. Divide yellow cake mix, placing all but one cup on a mixing bowl. Stir the melted butter and one egg into the cake mix. Press the mixture into the bottom of a 9'x13' pan. Mix the jar of pecan pumkin butter with two eggs and milk. Pour this result over the cake mix. Stir the reserved cup of cake mix with the flour, sugar, softened butter and cinnamon. Mix together until crumbly. Sprinkle ofver the top of the pumplin layer. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until golden brown. Cut into 2' squares. Serves 24.

          I used to drive by Muirhead everyday driving back and forth to work. Here is their website

          It's only $6.50 there. But it is probably fun to try and make it.

            How many ounces is the jar of Muirhead?

              The jar is 13.5 oz. I did check the website and saw the jars were $6.50 each. By the time you pay shipping it's cheaper to buy the $9 jar at the store.
