I know there are many pie bar recipes on this site, but I think there's room for another.

I dabbled with this one, until I got just the taste I was looking for. I love the creaminess of the filling and melt in your mouth crust, and just the right spice blend.

This would be a great addition to your Thanksgiving feast. A great alternative to pumpkin pie. They freeze well too!

Enjoy!

How to Make ~ Frost On The Pumpkin Pie Bars ~

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degree F.

    Line a 9 x 13 baking dish with parchment paper, overhanging some, for easy removal from pan. I'm sure you could just lightly grease the dish as well...I always use the parchment paper.

    In food processor, place all crust ingredient, ad pulse to form crumbs. It will come together as you press into dish. Or you can make the crumbs with a pastry cutter.
  2. Evenly, press crumbs into dish. Place in oven and bake 15 minutes.
  3. Make filling now:

    In a large bowl, whisk together the pumpkin, milk and eggs.
  4. Next whisk in all the spices and brown sugar. Set aside
  5. Make topping:

    I also do this in my food processor. Place all ingredients, including nuts. Pulse until you have a nice crumb mixture.
  6. Once crust is baked, remove from oven and evenly pour the filling over it.

    Evenly sprinkle crumb mixture over the filling.
  7. Bake for 30 - 35 minutes or until filling is set and crumbles are starting to color.
  8. Cool on rack. Place in refrigerator for at least 2 - 3 hours.

    Serve as is or with a dollop of whipped cream.

    I hope your family enjoys these bars as much as mine does.
