~ 1 1/3 cups flour
~ 1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
~ 3/4 cup sugar
~ 3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) cold butter
~ 1 cup old-fashioned or quick-cooking oats (uncooked)
~ 1 pkg (8oz) cream cheese, softened
~ 1/2 cup sugar
~ 3 eggs
~ 1 can (15 oz) pumpkin
~ 1 Tbsp pumpkin pie spice
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
In a 9x13 inch pan, line with tin foil and oil the bottom of the pan.
In a mixing bowl, add together the CRUST ingredients: flour; brown sugar; sugar; butter; and oats.
For the butter, soften/melt the butter. Don't melt it completely, just put it in the microwave for about 10 seconds.
Now add in the rest of the CRUST ingredients
Now, use a fork or a pastry blender (I just used a fork) to mix the CRUST ingredients together.
This makes a crumbly crust
Save 1 cup of the crumbly and set aside.
Now press the crumbly on the bottom of the oiled foil pan
Bake for 15 minutes.
Now work on the filling while the crust is baking
Scoop the pumpkin into a mixing bowl
Now add in the sugar, pumpkin pie spice, eggs and cream cheese
And mix with a hand mixer and then stir with a fork when you are done with the hand mixer
Pour the filling over the baked crust
Now use the reserved 1 cup of the crumbly to sprinkle over the top for the top crust
Now bake this for 25 minutes
Let cool, cut up and enjoy!
