Mom's Pumpkin Bars

These are so yummy I just have to make them at least once each Autumn. I had forgotten how GOOD they make your house smell while they are baking!! They taste somewhat like pumpkin pie with a toasted, nutty, crunchy topping that is wonderful! Serve with a big dollop of soft whipped cream and you're in heaven.

1 c flour
1/2 c oats
1/2 c brown sugar
1/2 c butter, softened

-Mix and press in bottom of a 9x13 pan. Bake at 350 for 15 minutes.

2 c pumpkin
1 can evaporated milk
2 eggs
3/4 c sugar
1/2 t salt
1/4 t ground cloves
1 t cinnamon
1/2 t ginger

-Mix well and pour over crust. Bake another 30 minutes.

1/2 c nuts, chopped (pecans)
1/2 c brown sugar
2 T butter, softened

-Mix and sprinkle on top. Put back in oven again for another 30 minutes.
