Pumpkin Pie Cookie Bars

Pumpkin Pie Cookie Bars

It's Pumpkin baking season, and this is a delicious recipe, which is definitely worth repeating!
This recipe may sound a little weird a first, but I promise it's amazing! 
My housemates loved this recipe and helped bake it with me. 

If you don't want to make the whole recipe, it can be cut in half and baked in a 8 x 8 baking pan - I tried this and it still turns out perfect!

  • 1 cup of butter
  • 2 cup of brown sugar

    Directions:

    Preheat the oven to 350°F

    Cookie Layer: Soften the butter, and cream together with the brown sugar.

    Beat in the eggs, and vanilla.
    Add the flour, baking powder and salt, then combine all together.
    Grease a 9 x 13 baking pan, and add the cookie layer, pressing down evenly to cover the entire baking pan. 

    Pumpkin Pie Layer: Soften the butter, and cream together with the sugar.

    Beat in the eggs and vanilla.
    Mix in the pumpkin puree.
    Add the flour,  baking powder, salt, and pumpkin pie spice.
    Combine completely.
    Add this mixture evenly on top of the cookie layer.
    Try not to get too much on the edges of the pan because these will burn.

    Sugar Topping: Mix together the sugar and cinnamon.
    Sprinkle the mixture evenly on top of the pumpkin pie layer.

    Bake for approximately 40 minutes.

    Let cool, then cut into squares.


    Happy pumpkin baking!
