Pumpkin squares (for the piecrust challenged)
Personally I love making piecrust but if it frightens you, this recipe tastes just like the old pumpkin pie recipe on the can, but without the rolling pin etc.
2 cups flour
1 cup oats
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup (or a bit less) melted butter
1 15-1/2 ounce can pumpkin (that's the small size)
1 can (13-1/2 oz) evaporated milk
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 ts salt
1 ts cinnamon
1/2 ts ginger
1/2 ts cloves
Mix the first five ingredients and press into a non-stick lasagna pan. Bake at 350 for about 15 minutes.
Mix the rest of the ingredients, pour them over the crust, and bake at 350 for about half an hour more. It will puff up and look and smell and taste just like pumpkin pie.
