Pumpkin Bars

My nephew asked for pumpkin bars so I'm sharing the recipe we all had for one of our Thanksgiving dinner dessert.  Our kids grew up on these and if they were not present, there was an awful lot of complaining.

 Pumpkin Bars


1 cup flour
1/2 cup quick rolled oats
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup butter

Pumpkin Filling 

1 can (1 lb) pumpkin (2 cups)
1 (13 1/2 oz) can of evaporated milk
2 eggs
3/4 sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. cloves
1/2 tsp. ground ginger

Combine flour, oats, 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1/2 cut butter.  Press on 13   X  9 pan.  Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes. 

Combine pumpkin, milk, eggs, sugar, salt and spices.  Beat well.  Pour onto baked crust.  Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.  

Sprinkle with walnuts or pecans.


You can add a crusty top to the bars.


1/2 cup pecans
1/2 brown sugar
2 tsp. butter

Combine the nuts and brown sugar and 2 Tbs of butter.  Sprinkle over pumpkin.  Return to the oven and bake another 15 to 20 minutes.  Serves 12.

When you serve you can drizzle caramel ice cream sauce over the top or whipped cream. 

Hope you add it to your pumpkin dessert recipes.

Be happy and may God bless you and yours.
