These bars start with a brown sugar cinnamon streusel crust, layered with a pumpkin pie filling, and finished with a streusel crumble topping!
For the streusel crust layer
1cupold fashioned rolled oats
1 1/2cupsbrown sugar
For the pumpkin filling
28 oz pkgs cream cheese, room temperature
1cupcanned pumpkinnot pumpkin pie filling
2teaspoonpumpkin pie spiceor cinnamon
2tablespoonsheavy whipping creamor milk
Preheat oven to 350° F. Grease a 9 x 13 inch baking pan. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, oats, brown sugar, cinnamon and salt. Pour in the melted butter and stir until crumbly. Firmly press 1/2 of the mixture in the bottom of the prepared baking pan. Set aside.
In another large bowl, beat together the cream cheese and granulated sugar until smooth. A hand mixer makes this easy. Then, add the pumpkin, flour, pumpkin pie spice and cream. Beat again until smooth. Last, add the eggs one at a time, beating just until combined.
Pour the pumpkin mixture over the crust and gently spread around. Finally, crumble on the remaining streusel mixture. Bake at 350° for 35-45 minutes or until the center is set and no longer jiggles. Let cool completely before serving.
Store tightly covered in the refrigerator for up to several days.
