Pumpkin Pie Bars

Finally! It feels like I’ve been waiting FOREVER to make something with pumpkin. But this weekend I was determined to finally make use of that delicious pumpkin butter I bought from Lyman Orchard the other weekend. I’ve never really been a huge fan of pumpkin but I tried a little taste and it wasn’t too bad. However, I definitely liked the apple butter much better.


Pumpkin Pie Bars
Adapted from Eagle Brand

  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour, plus 1 tablespoon, divided
  • 1 cup finely chopped nuts (I was so sure I had pecans lying around in my pantry but I had to use walnuts instead :()
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon, divided
  • 3/4 cup butter
  • 1 (15 oz.) can pumpkin (2 cups)
  • 1 (14 oz.) can Eagle Brand sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 9 oz. jar pumpkin butter
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  1. HEAT oven to 375°F. Combine 1 1/2 cups flour, nuts, granulated sugar, brown sugar and 1 teaspoon cinnamon in medium bowl. Add butter; mix until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Reserve 1 1/4 cups crumb mixture. Pat remaining mixture on bottom of ungreased 13 x 9-inch baking pan
  2. COMBINE pumpkin, sweetened condensed milk, eggs, remaining 1 teaspoon cinnamon, allspice, pumpkin butter, chocolate chips, and salt in large bowl; mix well. Pour evenly over crust
  3. MIX reserved crumbs with remaining 1 tablespoon flour. Sprinkle over pumpkin mixture
  4. BAKE 30 to 35 minutes or until set. Cool 10 minutes. Serve warm

Fresh from the oven!
