Pumpkin-Pie Bars

 Punpkin pie bars

We made a yummy treat the other day, Pumpkin-Pie bars. If you love pumpkin pie, you will love these. It is a crispy crust with a deep pumpkin filling, just like the pie. Enjoy !!!!!


Pumpkin-Pie Bars

3/4 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup spelt or whole wheat pastry flour
1 cup chopped toasted pecans
1/2 cup of rapadura or brown sugar
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon (one teaspoon for crust, one for batter)
1/2 cup melted butter
1 (15 ounce) can pumpkin 
1 cup heavy cream
1/4 cup maple syrup
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
1/4 teaspoon salt

Preheat oven to 350. In mixing bowl, combine flours, nuts, sugar and 1 teaspoon cinnamon. Add butter, mix until crumbly. Reserve 1/3 of the mixture. Pat remaining mixture on bottom of 13x9-inch baking pan (you can use a bit smaller pan, it will just be a deeper bar and cook a bit longer)

Meanwhile, in large mixing bowl combine pumpkin, heavy cream, eggs, cinnamon, spices, maple, vanilla and salt. Mix well. Pour evenly over crust ad sprinkle reserved crust over pumpkin mixture.

Bake 40-50 minutes or until set

Clarice, this recipe sounds wonderful. Do you know what I could substitute for the heavy cream (one is allergic to dairy) it would have a full rich flavor but not the dairy??? Dianntha


Oh yummy. My brother loves pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving. Perhaps I'll give these a whirl!


Love that picture. Thanks for the recipe!
Sounds great!


I love your autumn decorations Clarice. There is just something about a path.....
These sound soooo good!
Put the coffee on!


You have brought back memories of a very similar recipe I used to make...I wonder what ever happened to it! Thank you for sharing this; I will definitely be making them, as pumpkin pie is my favorite!


Yummy recipe, but most of all I love the picture! And how exciting to know I've been there and walked on that pathway!

I hope you and yours have a wonderful day!


Thanks for the recipe, they sound delicious. We all love pumpkin pie in our house, so these would be a success. I am looking forward to your post for the bunny books on the blog tour. Karen


I am going to make these for sure. Only one person in our family eats pumpkin pie and I always make it and end up throwing out most of it. Maybe these bars will entice more guests!!


What a great recipe--it sounds so very delicious!

Thanks for the recipe, Clarice. Do you know that I love pumpkin "anything" even more than chocolate? It's true! I loved the picture above the post ~ is that a picture of your home?


Those sound delicious Clarice. I just popped in to celebrate the arrival of my copy of Victoria! Perfect for a cosy read tonight. Happy November, Gill.


Mmm..these sound really yummy, Clarice! Pumpkin is one of my favorite foods.
Thank you for the warm "welcome back," it's great to be home!

I made a recipe very much like this before and loved the oats/pecan crust. Makes it much more flavorful.
