Instructions Checklist

  • For filling, in a large bowl combine pumpkin, brown sugar, cinnamon, ginger, salt, and cloves. Add eggs; beat lightly with a fork until combined. Gradually add half-and-half; stir just until combined. Pour filling into crust-lined pan.

  • Bake for 40 to 45 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Sprinkle top with toffee pieces and pecans. Cool in pan on a wire rack.

  • Using the edges of the foil, lift the uncut bars out of the pan. Cut into bars. Cover and chill within 2 hours. If desired, drizzle with caramel topping just before serving.

Ginger Crumb Crust

In a medium bowl combine 2 cups crushed gingersnaps (about 35 cookies), 1/4 cup sugar, and 1/4 cup all-purpose flour. Add 1/2 cup melted butter and stir until well combined.

To Store:

Place bars in a single layer in an airtight container; cover. Store in the refrigerator for up to 2 days. Do not freeze.
