Pumpkin Pie Crumb Bars

Pumpkin Pie Crumb Bars

You might be looking at this post thinking I’m getting way ahead of myself. Maybe I am, but I blame those candle stores at the mall. You walk past their store and smell the scent of spiced pumpkin pie, but seriously people where’s is the pumpkin pie? I want the real thing. Those candles may smell good but definitely not as good as the real thing. Or maybe it’s just knowing that when you are smelling the real thing there’s actually something you’ll get to eat and enjoy not just smell. I have a love hate relationships with those candles, they just make me want the food all day.
