Pumpkin Dessert Bars


Ingredients:
  • 1-3/4 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 1-1/3 cups Imperial Sugar® / Dixie Crystals® Granulated Sugar, divided
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 5 eggs
  • 1 can (15 ounces) solid-pack pumpkin
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 envelope unflavored gelatin
  • 1/4 cup cold water
  • Whipped topping and ground nutmeg, optional

Instructions:

  1. In a small bowl, combine graham cracker crumbs and 1/3 cup sugar; stir in butter. Press into a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish.
  2. In a small bowl, beat cream cheese and 2/3 cup sugar until smooth. Beat in 2 eggs just until blended. Pour over crust. Bake at 350° for 20-25 minutes or until set. Cool on a wire rack.
  3. Meanwhile, separate remaining eggs and set whites aside. In a large saucepan, combine the yolks, pumpkin, brown sugar, milk, salt and cinnamon. Cook and stir over low heat for 10-12 minutes or until mixture is thickened and reaches 160°. Remove from the heat.
  4. In a small saucepan, sprinkle gelatin over cold water; let stand for 1 minute. Heat over low heat, stirring until gelatin is completely dissolved. Stir into pumpkin mixture; set aside.
  5. In a large heavy saucepan, combine reserved egg whites and remaining sugar. With a portable mixer, beat on low speed for 1 minute. Continue beating over low heat until mixture reaches 160°, about 12 minutes. Remove from the heat; beat until stiff glossy peaks form and sugar is dissolved.
  6. Fold into pumpkin mixture; spread evenly over cream cheese layer. Cover and refrigerate for 4 hours or until set. Garnish with whipped topping and nutmeg if desired. Yield: 15 servings.

  1. I made these last weekend and they are very rich and delicious, but a ton of work. (ie, beating eggwhites over low heat for 12 minutes!) not sure I'd go through it again.
