Pumpkin Bars







Pumpkin Bars
Ingredients
1 3/4
cups all-purpose flour
1.5
cups Quaker old-fashioned oats
3/4
cup packed brown sugar
1/2
cup granulated sugar
3
tablespoons cornstarch
1/2
cup (1 stick) butter, melted
1
pkg. (8 oz.) cream cheese, softened
1
teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
2
large eggs
1
can (30 oz.) LIBBY's Easy Pumpkin Pie Mix
frosting (optional)
Directions
1. Preheat oven to 350° F. Grease 13 x 9-inch baking pan.
2. Combine flour, Quaker oats and brown sugar in large bowl. Stir in butter until moistened. Reserve 1 cup mixture for topping. Press remaining mixture firmly onto bottom of prepared pan. Place in oven and cook for 5 minutes.
3. Beat cream cheese, granulated sugar, cornstarch and pumpkin pie spice in large mixing bowl until smooth. Beat in eggs. Beat in pumpkin pie mix. When crust is finished baking pour mixture over it. (Crust should NOT be cooled when you do this.) Then sprinkle with the reserved oat mixture.
4. Bake for 30-45 minutes or until knife inserted in center comes out clean. Cool completely in pan on wire rack. Refrigerate for 1 to 2 hours. I like to drizzle frosting over the top of mine.
