Pumpkin spice is a flavor my family can't seem to get enough of this time of year. When munching on a Biscoff cookie, it dawned on me that they'd make a perfect cookie crust for a fall bar or pie.
While it has been ruminating awhile, today I finally got around to making a recipe. It is pretty quick if you are using a food processor or Vitamix to make it. Just check out that delicious cookie crust!
Pumpkin Pie Spice Bar with Biscoff Cookie Crust
1 15 oz. can pumpkin purée
1 package of Silken Firm Tofu
1 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
1Tbsp. Corn starch
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
Biscoff Cookie Crust
1 package of Biscoff Cookies
4 Tbsp. Earth Balance Buttery Sticks
Preheat oven to 350. Put entire package of Biscoff cookies into the food processor, and grind until large chunks are gone. Add in melted/softened Earth Balance margarine and combine. Press into the bottom of a 9 x 13 inch pan.
Mix tofu in food processor or Vitamix until creamy. Add the remaining ingredients and blend well. Pour over crust in pan and spread evenly. Bake for 45-50 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.
Pumpkin Shaped Bars: Use a pumpkin cookie cutter to make pumpkin shaped bars. To create a jack o'lantern, slice up chocolate into triangles and a mouth.
