Ingredients

For the crust:

  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • pinch salt
  • 1 stick unsalted butter softened
  • 1/2 cup quick oats

For the filling:

For the whipped cream:

  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions 

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and grease a 9x13" baking dish with cooking spray.  Set aside.

Prepare the crust:

  • Place the flour, brown sugar, and pinch of salt in a medium bowl and whisk to combine.  Beat in the softened butter with a hand mixer on medium speed just until incorporated.
  • Stir in the quick oats just until combined.
  • Pour the crust mixture into the prepared pan and press evenly.  Bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.

Prepare the filling:

  • Place the eggs in a medium bowl and beat well with a whisk.  Add the pumpkin puree, sweetened condensed milk and spices, and whisk well to combine.
  • Pour the pumpkin mixture over the crust and bake for 20-25 minutes or until set.
  • Remove from heat and cool completely on a wire rack.  Once cooled, cut into bars.

Prepare the whipped cream:

  • Place the heavy whipping cream, sugar, and vanilla in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment.  Beat on medium high until stiff peaks begin to form.  Do not over beat or the cream will turn to butter.  Whisk by hand a few seconds more until stiff peaks are visible.
  • Pipe or dollop the cream on top of the bars, serve, and enjoy!

Notes

  • The pumpkin pie bars and the whipped cream in advance.  Store the bars covered tightly at room temperature or in the fridge if you prefer them chilled.  Whisk the cream just before serving as it separates once it's been whipped, top your bars and enjoy!
  • The oats give this crust a hearty, slightly chewy texture.  If you prefer not to use them, substitute with another 1/2 cup all purpose flour.
  • Leftover bars may be stored in an airtight container in the fridge or at room temperature for up to 5 days.
