  5. Bake for 1 hour. Cool completely before cutting.


  1. This really looks incredible. I was wondering if I can substitute the pumpkin with cushaw? I raised some cushaws this year and would really like some new recipes besides pie.

  2. Hi Jennette,

    Based on a little Internet research, it looks like cushaw is a sweeter squash often used as substitute for pure pumpkin, so I would imagine that it would be great in this recipe! I think you can follow our fresh pumpkin puree instructions to make your own cushaw puree for use in this recipe. Hope this helps!

  3. Hi Rachael,

    You do not bake the crust in advance, as it bakes with the rest of the layers. However, the bar should be refrigerated after cooling until serving time, as the filling is similar to pumpkin pie. They do taste the best at room temperature, though. Thanks for your question, and we’ve updated the recipe to reflect it!

  4. Hi Carla,

    Sure, I don’t see why you couldn’t substitute pecans for hazelnuts! Sounds like a delicious combination to us. Let us know how they turn out!
