Pumpkin Pie Crumb Bars

These are similar to our Blackberry Oatmeal Bars we made awhile back.  (Which were awesome, by the way.)  That recipe called for a cake mix, which makes it so darn simple.  But sometimes I like making a recipe from scratch and not from a mix, so this recipe is perfect.

These bars are a delicious oatmeal cookie with a thick layer of pumpkin pie in the middle.  Yep, you read that right – pumpkin pie!  Inside a cookie!  Yep. Look how delicious they look.

I just love my Perfect Brownie Pan.  It makes such perfect brownies and bars.
