Decadent Pumpkin-Pecan Bars

Crust and the Streusel Topping
6 cups all-purpose flour
4 cups brown sugar
1 1/4 pounds (5 sticks) butter
3 cups pecans

3 cups cream cheese, brought to room temperature
4 1/2 cups granulated sugar
2 1/2 cups plain pumpkin pure
2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
1 tablespoon ground allspice
1 tablespoon ground clove
1 tablespoon ground nutmeg
1 tablespoon salt
10 eggs
1 1/2 tablespoons vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 340 degrees F.

In a small mixer with a paddle attachment, combine all the ingredients for the crust and streusel topping until crumbly. Reserve four cups for the topping. Press the remaining mixture into one or more large, greased sheet pans.

To make the filling, cream together the cream cheese and the sugar until smooth. Add the pumpkin, spices and salt to the cream-cheese mixture; mix until the ingredients blend into one color, scraping down the sides of the bowl at least once to make sure everything gets thoroughly combined.

When you are done mixing, or three-fourths the way into the process, blend in the eggs and vanilla extract. Pour filling onto the crust, spreading it evenly. With your fingers, crumble the streusel topping over the filling. Bake for 45 minutes to an hour, until the streusel begins to brown.

Makes 35 (2 1/2- to 3-inch) squares.
