The Tailgater's Handbook Recipe for Pumpkin Walnut Praline Bars

Pie crust (pre-made) to fit 9/13
1 cup solidly packed canned pumpkin
3 large eggs
2/3 cups light brown sugar packed
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
3/4 cup evaporated milk
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
1 tablespoon unbleached all purpose flour
2 Tbs. unsalted butter, softened
1 cup chopped walnuts
Preheat the oven to 350. Roll the dough and trim it to fit. Brush with egg whites and place it into buttered 9/13 dish/pan and chill in the fridge until ready to bake. Mix the pumpkin, eggs brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg with a whisk until smooth. Gradually stir in evaporated milk until blended. Now pour the mixture over the crust in the baking pan and bake for 25 minutes. Remove the pan from the oven and let it stand for at least 5 minutes. Meanwhile, mix the brown sugar and flour in a bowl. Now, add the butter and mix with a fork or your fingers until crumbly. Add the walnuts and stir to blend. Sprinkle this mixture over the pumpkin bars and return the bars to the oven for 15 more minutes or until lightly browned. Cool on a rack before cutting into bars. This will make 24 small bars.
