Maple-Pumpkin Pie Bars

“Pumpkin bars with a hint of maple flavor have cake on the bottom, a creamy middle layer, and a layer of fluffy whipped topping to finish. Sprinkle with cinnamon and toasted pecans for the perfect touch.”

  • 4 eggs, divided
  • 1/2 cup butter or margarine, melted
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
