Pumpkin Pie Bars

I LOVE pumpkin pie and these bars are even BETTER! The spices, the texture, the taste...everything about these Pumpkin Pie Bars will make your mouth water for more! They are FANTABULOUS!!!

Pumpkin Pie Bars
1 1/3 c. flour
1/2 c. brown sugar
3/4 c. white sugar, divided
3/4 c. cold butter
1 c. oatmeal
1/2 c. chopped walnuts
1 8 oz cream cheese, softened
3 eggs
1-15 oz canned pumpkin
1 t. cinnamon
1 t. ground ginger
1/4 t. nutmeg
1/4 t. ground cloves

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9x13 glass baking pan with cooking spray.

Combine flour, brown sugar, 1/4 c. white sugar and mix well. Add butter; using a pastry blender (or 2 knives) cut in mixture until it looks like coarse crumbs. Stir in oatmeal and walnuts. Reserve 1 cup mixture. Press remaining mixture in the bottom of the prepared pan.

In a bowl, beat together softened cream cheese, 1/2 c. sugar, eggs, pumpkin and spices until well blended. Pour and spread over entire crust. Sprinkle with reserved oatmeal mixture. Bake for 35-40 minutes. Cool completely. I put mine in the refrigerator so they would set up quicker and completely. Cut into bars. Store in the refrigerator.
