Pumpkin Pie Bar picture

Found an excuse to make these again. Just as tasty - and this time I remembered to get a picture before they were all gone.  I intentionally added 1 1/2 cups chopped nuts instead of the 1 cup called for in the original recipe.  Really like the nuttiness of the bottom crust and streusel-like topping.

Pumpkin Pie Bars

For our family dinner Sunday  I was to bring dessert.  I came across a couple of pumpkin recipes I thought I'd try - after all it was Halloween.  One was Pumpkin Brownies.  They were okay but I probably won't make them again.  The other was Pumpkin Pie Bars.  They didn't have a bit of chocolate in them but oh my were they good!  They are definitely on my preferred recipe list!  Thought I'd share. 

Pumpkin Pie Bars by Eagle Brand


  • 1 1/2 cups All Purpose Flour
  • 1 cup finely chopped nuts (Pecans are a good choice SL)
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon, divided
  • 3/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1 (15 ounce) can pumpkin
  • 1 (14 ounce) can EAGLE BRAND® Sweetened Condensed Milk
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon All Purpose Flour


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. In medium bowl, combine 1 1/2 cups flour, nuts, sugars and 1 teaspoon cinnamon. Add butter, mix until crumbly. Reserve 1 1/4 cups of the mixture. Pat remaining mixture on bottom of greased 13x9-inch baking pan.
  2. Meanwhile, in large mixing bowl, combine pumpkin, sweetened condensed milk, eggs, remaining 1 teaspoon cinnamon, allspice and salt; mix well. Pour evenly over crust. Mix reserved crumbs with 1 tablespoon flour. Sprinkle over pumpkin mixture.
  3. Bake 30 to 35 minutes or until set. Cool 10 minutes. Serve warm. Store leftovers in refrigerator.
I used probably 1 ½ cups of pecans – really tasted good.  In my haste to get these put together for dinner Sunday, I forgot to add the flour to the crumb topping.

I served whipped cream with these bars.

For a picture you'll need to go to - I couldn't figure out how to get the picture - we finished the pan before I thought to get a picture.  Hmmm, maybe I need to make another batch.
