Instructions Crust & Topping ~ Preheat oven to 350° F. Line a 9x13" baking sheet with parchment paper, including sides. Combine softened butter, flour, and powdered sugar, and mix until it just forms a dough. Use 2/3 of your dough mixture to line the bottom of your baking dish. Press evenly across the bottom. Mix oats, cinnamon, and brown sugar into remaining dough forming medium sized crumbs. Spread crumble topping onto a baking sheet. Bake crust for 10 minutes and crumbles for 5-10 minutes, until golden. Set crumbles aside to garnish on top the Pumpkin Pie Layer Bars. Cream Cheese Layer ~ Beat cream cheese, sour cream, sugar, and vanilla until smooth. Add eggs, mix until combined. Spread cream cheese layer over crust. Bake for 20-25 mins, or until set. Pumpkin Pie Layer ~ Combine yolks (reserving whites aside), pumpkin puree, brown sugar, milk, salt, and pumpkin spice in a medium saucepan. Heat and stir over medium-low heat for 10 minutes or until mixture reaches 160° F. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla extract. In a small bowl, sprinkle gelatin over water. Let stand for a minute, then microwave for 30 seconds until dissolved. Stir gelatin mixture into pumpkin mixture. In a double boiler, combine sugar, egg whites, and cream of tartar. Beat with a hand mixer for 7-9 minutes until stiff and glossy. Fold egg mixture into pumpkin mixture and spread over cream cheese layer. Sprinkle crumble topping above pumpkin layer. Refrigerate 4 hours, or until firm. Garnish with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or whipped topping. Courses Dessert
