Toffee-Pumpkin Pie Bars

I know it’s 75 degrees outside, but I just couldn’t resist making these delicious Toffee-Pumpkin Pie Bars. They were super easy for an amateur baker like me, and definitely scratch the itch if you’re looking to satisfy a pumpkin craving. They are more the consistency of pumpkin pie than a traditional bar, but I actually thinks that makes these better.

What You Need

  • Ginger Crumb Crust
  • 1 15 ounce can pumpkin
  • ¾ cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¾ teaspoon ground ginger
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cloves
  • 4 eggs, lightly beaten 
  • 1 ½ cups half-and-half or light cream
  • ½ cup toffee pieces
  • ½ cup chopped pecans, toasted
  • Caramel-flavor ice cream topping (optional)

What You Do

Ginger Crumb Crust

What You Need

  • 2 cups crushed gingersnaps (about 35 cookies)
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup melted butter

What You Do

In a medium bowl, combine gingersnaps, sugar, and flour. Add butter and stir until well combined.

Pumpkin Pie Bar Filling and Topping

What You Do

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line a 13x9x2-inch baking pan with foil, extending the foil over the edges of the pan. Lightly grease foil. Press the Ginger Crumb Crust evenly and firmly onto bottom of the prepared pan; set aside.

  • For filling, in a large bowl, combine pumpkin, brown sugar, cinnamon, ginger, salt, and cloves. Add eggs; beat lightly with a fork until combined. Gradually add half-and-half; stir just until combined. Pour filling into crust-lined pan.

  • Bake in the preheated oven for 40 to 45 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Sprinkle top with toffee pieces and pecans. Cool in pan on a wire rack.

  • Using the edges of the foil, lift the baked mixture out of the pan. Cut into bars. Cover and chill within 2 hours. If desired, drizzle with caramel topping just before serving. Makes 32 bars.

This would make for a terrific treat this weekend. Enjoy!
