Step 1

Preheat the oven to 375°F. Grease the sides and bottom of an 8-inch square baking pan and line with parchment paper. Measure and prep all ingredients.

Step 2

In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together flour, brown sugar, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt.

Step 3

Add the melted butter and mix until a crumbly dough forms. Reserve about ¾ cup of the mixture for the topping.

Step 4

Press the remaining dough into the prepared baking pan. Set aside.

Step 5

Make the pumpkin filling. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, place the pumpkin puree, egg, granulated sugar, cinnamon and vanilla extract. Mix until combined.

Step 6

Pour the pumpkin filling over the crust.

Step 7

Sprinkle with the reserved topping mixture. Bake for 28-32 minutes or until the topping is golden brown.

Step 8

Cool completely in the pan before cutting into squares. Enjoy!
