Bar #6: Pumpkin Pie Snickerdoodle

The Pumpkin Pie Bar.
I’m seriously in love.
I know, I know…you’re not surprised by my love of pumpkin pie.  This bar was like eating a piece of Thanksgiving pie but in the shape of a bar.  With a cookie crust.  Delicious.
Want to get extra fancy?  Throw a dollop of whipped cream on top.
You’re welcome.
Shopping List
1 box of spice cake mix
1/2 cup vegetable oil
4 eggs
1 stick of butter, at room temperature
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice (or you can use cinnamon)
1 cup flour
1 1/2 cups canned pumpkin (I use Libby’s)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Grease a 13×9 inch baking dish with Pam.

In a mixing bowl, combine cake mix, veggie oil, and 2 eggs with an electric mixer.  Spread  mixture across the bottom of your pan.

In a second mixing bowl, cream together your butter and sugar.  Slowly beat in your remaining 2 eggs and vanilla.

In a smaller bowl, combine your baking powder, pumpkin pie spice and flour with fork.  Slowly beat this dry mixture into your butter mixture.  Beat in your pumpkin.

Spread the pumpkin mixture down on top of your cake mix layer in the pan.  Bake 38 to 40 minutes.

Let your bars cool at least one hour before slicing and serving.

Thanksgiving in a bar.

    These sound delicious!! I've been wanting to try a pumpkin snickerdoodle cookie recipe that I found but the reviews were pretty awful so I was nervous to try it. I will have to try this one instead!
