I saw this on Pinterest the other day. I thought it was so funny because all over Facebook and Cooking Web pages it is pumpkin all day every day! So I posted it on my Facebook wall and boy oh boy did it take off! I guess everyone can relate to the pumpkin fiesta going on right now until Thanksgiving!
So to stay in the spirit of the season I decided to make Pumpkin Pie Bars. I found this recipe when visiting my mom in Canada this summer in one of the 10,000 magazines she kept for me.
Here is where I found the recipe: Kraft Canada
Heat your oven to 350 degrees F. Line with foil (and grease foil) or grease generously a 13×9-inch pan with foil. Mix flour, 1/4 cup 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 in your preheated oven for 25 min.; cool completely. If lined with foil remove to a cutting board and cut into portions. if not cut from pan and serve.
DELICIOUS! Not too sweet, creamy and a nice change from “super rich” pumpkin bars. I will definitely make this again, and the girls LOVED it!
Note: when I told Bear what I was making she said: “well, you weren’t kidding when you posted that on Facebook!” 🙂 I guess I wasn’t!
