Pumpkin Pie Bars

These Pumpkin Pie Bars are topped with a pecan streusel.  This pumpkin pie in bar form is a great fall dessert.

  
One of my favorite fall desserts is pumpkin pie.  I always like having pumpkin pie at Thanksgiving, but that is usually one of the only times of year that I have pumpkin pie. I usually don’t like to fill up on it too much during Thanksgiving, so I can have room for other desserts.   I decided to make Pumpkin Pie Bars so that I could have pumpkin pie anytime I wanted, without making a whole entire pie.  These would be great for Thanksgiving or for any party or occasion.  I really like the idea of Pumpkin Pie Bars for Thanksgiving instead of pie so that you can have a smaller piece and still have room for all the other great desserts that day.


I think pecans and pumpkin go great together, so I decided to give these Pumpkin Pie Bars a pecan streusel topping.  I thought that these bars tasted great and I loved the idea of pumpkin pie in bar form.  I also loved the streusel topping and thought it went great with the pumpkin bars.  These  pumpkin bars are a great fall treat and I hope that you enjoy them!

    Used Fat Free Evaporated Milk
    Used 7 egg whites instead of eggs
    Added – 1/4 ts of nutmeg, all spice and ginger
    Increased Cinnamon to 1 tablespoon
    Used 1 1/2 cups graham crackers
    reduced butter by 50%
    Added 2 tablespoons to drizzled over the crust before adding the filling-
