This recipe reminds me of thanksgiving! You could sub these squares for pumpkin pie they are so good. You'll need a 9x13-inch pan for these squares.
- 3⁄4 cup all-purpose flour
- 3⁄4 cup oatmeal
- 1⁄2 cup finely chopped walnuts or 1⁄2 cup pecans
- 1⁄2 cup unsalted butter
- 1 (3 1/2 ounce) box butterscotch pudding mix (not instant)
- 2 large eggs
- 1 cup flaked coconut
- 1 -2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
- 1 (15 ounce) can pumpkin
- 1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk (not the evaporated kind)
- whipped cream (to garnish)
- cinnamon or pumpkin spice, for garnish
- Preheat oven to 350°F.
- Mix all crust ingredients in a large bowl.
- You may want to pulse your nuts on the food processor to get them even finer for a more uniform crust.
- Press crust mix into an ungreased 9x13-inch pan.
- Try to spread it as evenly as possible.
- Beat eggs in the same bowl used for mixing the crust and mix in all remaining filling ingredients.
- Pour over crust and bake for 35-45 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.
- Cool for an hour and serve with whipped cream.
- Also yummy served warm with ice cream.
I really enjoyed this recipe. I liked the contrast of the different textures--the nuts and oatmeal in the crust, and the coconut in the filling. I wondered if I would like the coconut in the filling, but it was good. I baked it for the minimum time, 35 minutes. I'm going to make it again to take to our Thanksgiving luncheon at work.
I made this for Thanksgiving instead of the traditional pumpkin pie. I like the idea of the oatmeal crust with the pumpkin. I will be making this again. Thanks .::.Blink.::.
