Derby Pie Squares

I used a wonderful Derby Pie (Kentucky Derby!) recipe and, turned it into bars.  I needed a cookie type pick-up dessert for a meeting at my daughter's school today.  

I doubled this recipe, and, placed two pie crusts in the bottom of a jelly roll pan.  I trimmed the extra pieces (from the crust circles) to ensure the entire pan was covered in crust.  Mix up the filling and, pour over the top of the crust.  Bake for 20 minutes or, until lightly browned.  Really good!!!
