Pumpkin Spice Oreo Magic Cookie Bars

Pumpkin Spice Oreo Magic Cookie BarsMagic Cookie Bars just got a Fall time makeover!  With a buttery Oreo cookie crust, and pumpkin spiced chewy filling, these Pumpkin Spice Oreo Cookie Bars will always go faster than pumpkin pie!

Pumpkin Spice Oreo Magic Cookie BarsOh, America how I miss thee.  I miss your Christmas decorations that come way too early, your change of seasons, and your mountains of canned pumpkin puree.  That last part is really pulling on my heart strings.  I live in Dubai, and canned pumpkin does not come easily.  At home I usually can grab some year round and go pumpkin crazy.  In Dubai, not so much.

Pumpkin Spice Oreo Magic Cookie BarsBut you know what?  It’s taught me that not everything in a can is better.  Since I couldn’t find the canned stuff to save my life, I bought a big ‘ole pumpkin and roasted him the old fashioned way.  It was shockingly easy, and the puree tasted more pumpkin-y.  I don’t think I will ever go back now!  So in celebration of conquering my fear of homemade pumpkin puree, I gave my most favorite dessert a makeover and came up with these Pumpkin Spice Oreo Magic Cookie Bars.  I used crushed Oreos instead of graham crackers for the base, and blended some pumpkin puree and spices into the sweetened condensed milk.  It created a subtle pumpkin flavor that’s not overpowering.

  1. Wow these look and sound amazing Kathleen!! In the words of Joey from Friends – pumpkin, good. Chocolate, good, Oreos GOOOOOD. Plus they look so simple to make. Really interesting that you made your puree the old fashioned way! I live in England and there’s only one store I’ve found within a few miles radius that stocks canned pumpkin so I’m stocking up for the year! Good to know it’s that easy making it myself at home!
