Pumpkin Squares

We like pumpkin pie around here. But when we have company, one pie isn't enough. So I serve these pumpkin squares instead. They have all the taste of pumpkin pie but there are more servings to go around. The nutty crust offers a nice crunch, too.

Here's what you need:

For the crust:
1 cup flour
1/2 cup butter, melted
1/2 cup quick oats
1/4 cup chopped nuts

Mix well and pat into a greased 9x13 pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.

For the filling:
1 can (15 oz.) pumpkin - not pumpkin pie mix
1 cup evaporated milk
3/4 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground cloves
1/4 tsp ground ginger
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp vanilla

Stir all the filling ingredients together and blend well. Pour over the baked crust. Return to the oven for another 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.
