Pumpkin Delight Magic Bars     pumpkin delight magic bars


  • 1 package (11 oz.) vanilla wafers
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 3 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1 can (14 oz.) sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin spice
  • 1 can (15 oz.) solid-pack pumpkin
  • 1 1/2 cups flaked coconut
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips
  • 1 cup dried cranberries
  • 1 cup chopped pecans


  1. Preheat the oven to 350ºF.  Place vanilla wafers in a food processor;  pulse until coarse crumbs form.  Or do it the old fashioned way and put them in a zip-lock bag and pound them into crumbs.  (Much more satisfying)  Drizzle with melted butter and pulse until blended.  Press into bottom of a greased 13 x 9 inch baking pan.
  2. In a bowl, beat cream cheese, milk and pie spice until smooth.  Beat in the pumpkin.  Pour all over the crust.  Layer with coconut, white chocolate chips, cranberries and pecans.
  3. Bake for 45 – 55 minutes or until golden brown.  Cool in pan.
  4. Loosen from the sides of the pan with a knife.  Cut into bars.

Makes 2 dozen bars.
