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:

Instructions 

Prepare the crust:

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and grease a 9x13" baking dish with cooking spray.  Set aside.
  • 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. Pipe or dollop the cream on top of the bars, serve, and enjoy!

Notes

  • Pro tip:  Pumpkin pie bars may be made 1-2 days in advance. Store the bars covered tightly in the fridge. 
  • The oats give the shortbread crust a slightly chewy texture.  If you prefer not to use them, substitute with another 1/2 cup all purpose flour.
  • This recipe comes in handy when you're feeding a crowd.  A pie serves about 8 (in my house anyway!), but these bars serve 12.  If it's Thanksgiving, you can cut them even smaller because most people want to sample a little of everything.
  • Leftover bars may be stored in an airtight container in the fridge or at room temperature for up to 5 days.
