Pumpkin Pie Bars

Ingredients

Crust
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup old fashioned oats
  • ½ cup packed brown sugar
  • ½ cup butter
Pumpkin Filling
  • 1 can (15 oz) pumpkin puree
  • 1 can (12 oz) evaporated milk
  • 2 eggs
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon ginger
  • ¼ teaspoon cloves
Topping
  • ½ cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • ½ cup pecans, finely chopped
 Directions

Preheat the oven to 350ºF.

Combine the flour, oats, and ½ cup brown sugar. Cut in the butter using a fork or pastry cutter until the mixture looks like coarse meal. I like to put it all in my stand mixer and let it mix for a minute or two until it is completely combined and it looks crumbly. Press the mixture into an ungreased 9×13-inch baking dish. Bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, combine the pumpkin, evaporated milk, eggs, sugar, cinnamon, salt, ginger and cloves and mix until blended completely. When the crust is done, pour the filling mixture over the crust and continue to bake for 20 minutes.

In a small bowl, combine the brown sugar and butter. Use a fork to cut the butter into the sugar. It won’t turn into coarse crumbs like it did in for the crust, but the brown sugar will start to appear to be really moist and soft. Stir in the pecans. Sprinkle evenly over the top of the filling. Return the pan to the oven and bake an additional 20 minutes, or until the filling is just set. Remove from the oven and cool completely. Refrigerate until completely cooled. Once cool, cut into squares.
