- Line an 8×8 baking pan with parchment paper and spray with nonstick.
- In a large bowl, stir together melted butter, sugar, vanilla, salt, and flour until it starts to become a thick doughy texture.
- Press into your pan in an even layer, smoothing it out with parchment paper. You can also poke holes in it with a fork evenly along crust to keep it from puffing up unevenly.
- Bake at 300 degrees for 15 minutes, then set aside. Raise your oven temperature to 350.
- Combine pumpkin, sweetened condensed milk, honey, eggs, cinnamon, and salt. Mix well with an electric blender until fully incorporated.
- Pour it over the shortbread crust, and bake for 40-45 minutes or until the center is fully baked. When ready, remove from oven and cool for 15 minutes.
- Cut into squares and top with desired topping***
- Refrigerated pie crust, cut into cut fall shapes, cooked for 7-8 minutes. This is what I used and it is adorable!
