Pumpkin and Pecan Pie Bars

  • Prep Time:30 minutes
  • Cook Time:1 hour 20 minutes
  • Total Time:1 hour 50 minutes
  • Servings:9-16 squares
  • Medium


  • 1 box prepared pie crust
  • 7 1/2 oz pumpkin pie filling
  • 5 oz evaporated milk
  • 4 eggs
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 4 tablespoon butter, melted
  • 3/4 cup corn syrup
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 cup pecans
  • 2 cup chocolate chips
  • 1 splash bourbon
  • Step 1

    Unroll the pie crusts.

  • Step 2

    Grease a 9×9 pan with cooking spray. Line with the crusts, covering all sides. Trim any overlapping dough, and use scraps to fill spaces.

  • Step 3

    Bake the crust at 350°F for 10 minutes.

  • Step 4

    In a bowl, whisk together the pumpkin pie mix, evaporated milk, and 1 egg.

  • Step 5

    In another bowl, combine the brown sugar, melted butter, 3 eggs, corn syrup, and vanilla. Stir in the pecans, and chocolate chips.

  • Step 6

    Pour the pumpkin filling in the pan and smooth out. Carefully pour the pecan pie filling on top and spread to cover the pumpkin layer.

    #SpoonTip: If the crust shrinks, add the rest of your pie scraps to the sides of the pan before adding the filling.

  • Step 7

    Bake at 350°F for 1 hour 20 minutes. Let cool completely before serving.

    #SpoonTip: Cover the crust with foil if it is getting too brown.
