Ingredients

FOR THE CRUST
Cooking spray
3 c. all-purpose flour
1 1/2 c. (3 sticks) butter, cut into 1/2” pieces, softened
1/2 c. powdered sugar
Pinch kosher salt

FOR THE FILLING
3 c. pumpkin purée
2 c. heavy cream
1 c. packed brown sugar
4 large eggs, beaten
2 tbsp. all-purpose flour
1 tbsp. ground cinnamon, plus more for garnish
1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg
1/2 tsp. ground ginger
2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
1/2 tsp. kosher salt
1/2 c. whipped topping, for serving


Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350° and grease a 12″-x-17″ baking sheet with cooking spray. In a large bowl mix flour, butter, powdered sugar, and a pinch of salt together until mixture is crumbly. Press dough evenly into prepared pan and bake until barely set and just starting to turn golden, 20 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile prepare filling: In a large bowl, whisk together pumpkin, cream, brown sugar, eggs, flour, spices, vanilla, and salt. Pour filling over crust and bake until set and only slightly jiggly in the middle, 40 minutes. Let cool completely.
  3. Cut into squares then dollop with whipped topping and dust with cinnamon before serving.
