Old World Pumpkin Bars

A friend of mine brought these beauties to book club the other day, and man were they fabulous. I'm a big fan of anything pumpkin, especially this time of year. But I had any kind of pumpkin bar except, well, regular pumpkin bars, the kind with cream cheese frosting on top. These are kind of a blending of pumpkin  and pecan pies. They are super delicious!

Old World Pumpkin Bars


1 c. flour
1/2 c. brown sugar
1/2 c. quick oatmeal
1/2 c. butter

Mix and press in bottom of 9"x12" pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.


2 c. canned pumpkin
2 eggs
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. cloves
1 c. evaporated milk
3/4 c. white sugar
1/2 tsp. ginger

Mix and pour over crust. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.


1/2 c. pecans
2 tbsp. butter
1/2 c. brown sugar

Mix and sprinkle on top. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes more.

Cool before serving. Serve with Cool whip or whipped cream. 


  1. when you say "canned milk" does that mean sweetened condensed milk or evaporated milk?

  2. Casey,
    That is evaporated milk! Thanks for bringing that to my attention - the recipe should be fixed on both the blog and the recipage link now!
