Cinnamon Pumpkin Bars

This recipe has exhausted my pumpkin supply for the season. These bars are light and not too sweet. Come back on Thanksgiving for a recap of some of my favorite fall recipes. Now it's on to holiday mint and peppermint cookies!

1 cup graham cracker crumbs
2 tablespoons melted butter
1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup butter, softened
1 tsp vanilla
1 egg
1/4 cup canned pumpkin
1/2 cup cinnamon chips

Preheat oven to 350F.
In a small bowl, mix together the graham cracker crumbs and 2 tablespoons of butter. Press the mixture into the bottom of an 8x8 baking pan. Bake for 5 minutes until crust is set.
In a another small bowl mix together flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
In a large bowl, cream together sugars and butter. Add vanilla and eggs. Mix in canned pumpkin. Gradually add in the flour mixture. Stir in the cinnamon chips.
Pour over the graham cracker crust.
Bake 20 minutes.
Yields 16 bars.
