First Day of Fall Treats

When I saw this recipe today at HomesteadBlogger, I just had to tweak it a bit and give it a try for the first day of fall. 
Super simple and very tasty ... my kind of recipe! 


Preheat oven to 375.

Crumb Crust:

1 ½ cups rolled oats
1 ½ cups unbleached flour
¾ cup sugar
½ tsp. baking soda
½ tsp. salt
dash of pumpkin pie spice (optional)
¾ cup butter, melted

Combine the above ingredients. 
Pat ½ of the mixture into a greased 9×13 inch pan.
Bake 8 minutes.


1 15oz. can pumpkin
2/3 cup milk
1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla extract (optional)

Blend well. Pour into the crust.
Sprinkle the remaining crust mixture over the top. 
Bake 25 minutes .
Cool and then cut into bars.  Refrigerate. 


  1. It does sound good, Catherine. Think I will give it a try tomorrow. Thanks for sharing such a seasonal treat.

    Blessings to you this first day of fall.
