Old World Pumpkin Bars

Old World Pumpkin Bars (The Gingered Whisk) The Best of Fall! Layered oatmeal crust, pumpkin pie and pecan pie all in one! YUM!
A dear friend introduced me to the recipe for these beautiful fall bars, and I couldn’t be more pleased with them! Before now I have only had the traditional cream cheese frosting type pumpkin bars. And while those are pretty amazing by themselves, these bars really take it to the next level! Look at those gorgeous layers! Take these bars to your next holiday gathering or family meal, and you will impress everyone! The layers are quick and easy to prepare – just make the next layer while the previous one is baking, and you will be done before you know it!

These Old World Pumpkin Bars are the perfect fall dessert. A layered combination of oatmeal crust, pumpkin pie, and pecan pie, it doesn’t get much better than this! Store these bars in the fridge to keep them in perfect snacking condition! Dollop on some fresh whipped cream (a total must-have) when you are ready to serve!

    when you say "canned milk" does that mean sweetened condensed milk or evaporated milk?
