Everyday is Halloween























Happy 1st day of Fall everyone, which means Halloween is right around the corner!!! Enjoy everything this wonderful season has to offer!

Here is one of my favorite Fall recipes.
Wonderful treat on a chilly Sunday afternoon.

Pumpkin Pie Bars
1-1/3 cups Flour
3/4 cup Granulated sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
3/4 cup (1-1/2 sticks) cold butter or margarine
1 cup Old-fashioned or quick-cooking oats, uncooked
1/2 cup chopped Pecans
1 pkg. (8 oz.) Cream Cheese, softened
3 Eggs
1 can (15 oz.) pumpkin
2 Tbsp. Pumpkin pie spice
1 Tbsp. Cinnamon

HEAT oven to 350°F. Line 13x9-inch pan with foil, with ends of foil extending over sides; grease foil. Mix flour, 1/4 granulated sugar and brown sugar in medium bowl; cut in butter with pastry blender or 2 knives until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in oats and nuts.

RESERVE 1 cup oat mixture; press remaining onto bottom of prepared pan. Bake 15 min. Beat cream cheese, remaining sugar, eggs, pumpkin and spice with mixer until well blended. Pour over crust; sprinkle with reserved crumb mixture and cinnamon.

BAKE 25 min.; cool 10 min. I normally let them cool completely, still them in the fridge to firm up, then cut. This is not a recipe you can immediately serve.
