Pumpkin Pie Squares

  • 1 c. whole wheat flour
  • ½ c. oatmeal
  • ½ c. brown sugar
  • ½ c. butter
  • 2 c. pumpkin puree
  • 13 oz. evaporated milk
  • 2 eggs
  • ¾ c. white sugar
  • ½ tsp. cinnamon
  • ½ tsp. ginger
  • ½ tsp. cloves
  • ½ c. walnuts
  • ½ c. brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp. butter

Mix first four ingredients until crumbly and press into a 13” by 9” cake pan. Bake at 350 F for 15 mins. Combine puree, milk, eggs, brown sugar, cinnamon, ginger, and cloves and pour over crust and bake until it begins to set. Recipe says 20 mins but I usually bake it much longer. If you put the topping (combined walnuts, brown sugar, and butter) on too soon, it will sink to bottom. After topping has been sprinkled on top, bake 15 mins more or until pumpkin is completely set.
