These Pumpkin Streusel Squares are a great dessert for Thanksgiving or any time of the year. My favorite part is that you don't have to roll out a pie crust and it includes ingredients you may already have in the house.
Streusel Crust and Topping:
1 cup softened butter
¾ cup brown sugar
2 cups old fashioned oats
1 ½ cups flour
¾ cup chopped walnuts
3 eggs, beaten
1 (29 oz.) can sold pack pumpkin
1 (14 oz.) can sweetened condensed milk
¼ cup brown sugar
2 ½ teaspoons ground cinnamon
Combine streusel ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Reserve about 1 ½ cups (don’t pack it when measuring) in a small bowl for the topping. Press the remaining mixture into the bottom of a 9”x13”x2” glass baking pan. Bake at 350°F for 15 minutes.
Using the same bowl, combine the filling ingredients. When the crust is done, remove the pan from the oven and pour the pumpkin filling over the crust. Sprinkle the reserved streusel topping over the top. Return to the oven and bake at 350°F for 45 minutes, or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean. Allow to cool, chill if desired and cut into 2” squares.
Yield, about 24 two inch squares.
