1/2 C. Brown Sugar

3/4 C. cold Butter
1 C. Old-fashioned Quick Cooking Oatmeal, uncooked
1/2 C. Pecans, chopped
8 oz. Cream cheese, softened
3 Eggs
15 oz. can Pumpkin
1 Tbsp. Pumpkin Pie Spice

Preheat oven to 350. Line a 9x13 baking pan with parchment paper, grease lightly.
Mix flour, brown sugar, and 1/4 C. sugar in medium bowl; cut in butter with pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in oatmeal and pecans. Measure and set-aside 1 C. of this mixture; press the remaining mixture into bottom of the pan. Bake 15 minutes.
Beat cream cheese, remaining sugar, eggs, pumpkin and pumpkin pie spice with an electric mixer on medium speed, until well blended. Pour over crust; sprinkle with reserved crumb mixture.
Bake for 25 minutes. If desired, remove from pan by carefully lifting out parchment paper; cool completely. Cut into squares.
Store leftover bars in a tightly covered container in the refrigerator. Garnish with whipped cream or your favorite whipped topping.
