Really Quick: Pumpkin Pie Bars

This photo is the bar with a dry cake mix crust instead of the simple butter, flour & sugar below

I've recently posted these bars using a dry yellow cake mix - but this crust is more 'real' like a pumpkin pie and I actually like it better as I can taste the 'cake mix' flavor in the other version. The filling is the real winner. Pumpkin Pie. This version of the bar is more like what your great grandma makes. Simple, easy and good.

Pumpkin Pie Bars

1 c butter
2 c flour
1/2 c sugar

2 c canned pumpkin
2/3 c sugar
1 t cinnamon
1/2 t ground ginger
1/4 t ground cloves
3 eggs
1 c heavy cream

Mix like pie crust and pat into a 13X9 pan. Try to bring he sides up the pan just alittle to prevent the filling from seeping under. Bake at 350° for 10 minutes. Remove from oven and pour filling over crust, before returning to oven.

Combine pumpkin, sugar and spices. Add eggs. In a separate bowl whip the cream until stiff peaks form. Fold the cream into the pumpkin mixture. Spread over crust. Bake at 375° for 35 to 45 minutes or until filling is set!Print Friendly and PDF
