Ingredients

  • 2 cups plus 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups old-fashioned oats
  • 1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • ¾ cups chopped pecans
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 ¼ teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
  • ¾ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 ¼ cups unsalted butter softened
  • 2 8 ounce packages cream cheese softened
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons heavy whipping cream
  • 2 large eggs
  • 9 ounces pumpkin butter store bought or homemade

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a 13x9 inch baking pan with parchment paper allowing excess to extend over the sides of the pan. Spray with cooking spray.
  • In a large bowl stir together 2 cups of flour, oats, brown sugar, pecans, salt, pumpkin pie spice and baking soda. Add the butter and with a mixer at medium low speed beat until crumbly.
  • Reserve 1 ½ cup of the mixture in a separate bowl. Press the rest of the oat mixture evenly into the prepared baking pan. Bake for about 20 minutes or until lightly brown.
  • Into a large bowl add the cream cheese, sugar, heavy whipping cream and the remaining 1 tablespoon of flour. With a mixer at medium speed, beat the mixture for about 2 to 3 minutes. Scrape the sides of the bowl and beat again until creamy.
  • Add the eggs one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Pour the mixture on top of the baked crust. Spoon the pumpkin butter onto the cream cheese mixture. Using a knife swirl them together.
  • Sprinkle the reserved oat mixture on top.
  • Bake for about 30 to 35 minutes or until the top is golden brown.
  • Remove from the oven and let cool completely. When cool, lift the baked bar using the excess parchment paper as handles.
  • Remove from the pan and cut into bars. Cover and refrigerate for up to 3 days.
