Pumpkin pie barsPosted: October 5, 2010 | |
My H work was having a long work day this week, so I thought since many would be there late into the night, I would bake for them. I made my usual sugar cookie bars and these pumpkin pie bars. I wanted something fall-ish and these were perfect and portable for everyone to grab and go while working!
1-1/3 cups flour
3/4 cup granulated sugar, divided
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
3/4 cup (1-1/2 sticks) cold butter or margarine
1 cup old-fashioned or quick-cooking oats, uncooked
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1 pkg. (8 oz.)cream cheese, softened
1 can (15 oz.) pumpkin
1 Tbsp. pumpkin pie spice
Heat oven to 350°F. Line 13×9-inch pan with foil, with ends of foil extending over sides; grease foil. Mix flour, 1/4 granulated sugar and brown sugar in medium bowl; cut in butter with pastry blender or 2 knives until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in oats and nuts.
Reserve 1 cup oat mixture; press remaining onto bottom of prepared pan. Bake 15 min. Beat cream cheese, remaining sugar, eggs, pumpkin and spice with mixer until well blended. Pour over crust; sprinkle with reserved crumb mixture.
Bake 25 min.; cool 10 min. Use foil to transfer dessert from pan to wire rack; cool completely.
