Toffee-Pumpkin Pie Bars

Yep, I'm one of those girls.  I'm a pumpkin-flavored anything fanatic; give me that and a iced coffee and I'm one happy white girl.  But really how can you blame me, iced coffee is absolutely delicious and pumpkin flavor is my jam.  And speaking of delicious and pumpkin-flavored...this week I'm sharing Toffee-Pumpkin Pie Bars.  Prepare to be in love with these little bars.


Toffee-Pumpkin Pie Bars    
brought to you by my grandparents; original recipe can be found here.

Ingredients:
Ginger Crumb Crust Recipe 
1 15oz can pumpkin
3/4 C packed brown sugar
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
3/4 tsp. ground giner
1/2 tsp. salt\
1/4 tsp. ground cloves
4 eggs, lightly beaten
1 1/3 C toffee pieces
1/2 C chopped pecans, toasted
Caramel-flavor ice cream topping (optional)




Instructions:
+Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line a 13x9x2-inch baking pan with foil, extending the foil over the edges of the pan. Lightly grease foil. Press the Ginger Crumb Crust (recipe found here) evenly and firmly onto the bottom of the prepared pan; set aside.

+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.


Go ahead and try it; your tastebuds will be in heaven!
