The cure for a sweet 'pumpkin' tooth

Pumpkin Pie Squares


1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup butter

2 cups pumpkin puree
1 12 ounce can evaporated milk
2 egg whites
3/4 cup white sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves

1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons butter


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Spray or grease one 9x13 inch pan.
Mix together the flour, oatmeal, brown sugar and butter.

Press into pan.

Bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown.

In a large deep metal bowl, beat egg whites until soft peaks form.
Blend together the pumpkin, evaporated milk, egg whites, sugar, salt, cinnamon, ginger and clove.

Pour custard into baked crust.

Bake for 30 minutes or until firm.

Mix together the chopped nuts, brown sugar and butter.

Sprinkle topping on custard.

Bake an additional 15 minutes.

Remove from oven and allow to cool.

Cut into squares.

I made these this week and they are so super duper yummy! I don't think the recipe should be altered at all...they are perfectly dangerous little squares of yummy~ness.

A new favorite in our house.
