Pumpkin Butterscotch Bars

It is easily whipped up with ingredients you probably have on hand, and is a perfect easy dessert or snack for this time of year.

Rich pumpkin, warm spices, and wonderfully gooey butterscotch sauce round out this trio of autumnal delights.

Pumpkin Butterscotch Bars
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • ½ stick butter (1/4 cup)
  • 3 tbsp pumpkin puree
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • ½ tsp ginger
  • ¼ tsp allspice or nutmeg
  • ¼ tsp salt
For the caramel topping:
  • 4 oz butterscotch chips
  • 1-2 tbsp milk
  1. Cream together the brown sugar, butter, and egg.
  2. Slowly fold in the pumpkin puree and spices, until the batter is completely combined.
  3. Pour into a greased 9"x9" baking pan and bake at 350° for 15 minutes. The edges should be just beginning to brown and a knife poked in the middle should come out clean.
  4. Cool in the baking pan.
  5. To make the butterscotch sauce, microwave the butterscotch chips in a glass bowl for 1 minute, stirring once in the middle.
  6. Add 1-2 tbsp milk to the melted chips and whisk together thoroughly until you have a deliciously gooey butterscotch sauce.
  7. When the pumpkin bars are cooled completely, drizzle them with the butterscotch sauce and serve warmed.


You may want to double the recipe — every time I make these at my house they are gone within a day. Don't worry, though, you can put these Pumpkin Butterscotch bars in the freezer and they freeze beautifully. Just take them out and warm in the microwave for a few moments before serving.
