The shortbread-like base of these bars includes chopped pecans; their flavour marries well with the richness of pumpkin. I use my signature Urban Cottage Pumpkin Spice Blend in this recipe. You can whip up your own batch or use a pre-made blend. Pecan halves glazed with maple syrup make a sweet and nutty garnish for these squares.
Pre-heat the oven to 350°F. Butter a 9-inch square baking pan and line with a length of parchment paper extending a couple inches above the pan on each side, so you can lift out the finished squares.
