Updated October 16, 2017

Ingredients

  • 1 roll (16.5 oz) refrigerated Pillsbury™ Sugar Cookie Dough
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 can (15 oz) pumpkin (not pumpkin pie mix)
  • 1 3/4 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons chai liquid concentrate
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. Spray 13x9-inch pan with cooking spray.
  • 2
    Press dough evenly in bottom pan. Bake 15 to 18 minutes or until light golden brown.
  • 3
    Meanwhile, in large bowl, beat eggs, pumpkin, 1/2 cup of the whipping cream, 1/2 cup of the chai concentrate, the sugar and salt with whisk until well blended. Pour pumpkin mixture evenly over crust.
  • 4
    Bake 40 to 45 minutes or until center is set. Cool completely, about 2 hours.
  • 5
    In medium bowl, beat remaining 1 1/4 cups whipping cream and remaining 2 tablespoons chai concentrate with electric mixer on high speed until soft peaks form. Spread evenly onto bars. Refrigerate 1 hour before serving.
  • 6
    Cut into 4 rows by 4 rows. Cover and refrigerate any remaining bars.

  • There are many brands of chai liquid concentrate. Some have a stronger spice flavor than others. We used Tazo™ chai concentrate.
  • The addition of cream in the pumpkin filling in these bars adds a creamy texture.
  • Garnish with nutmeg, if desired.
