Pumpkin Pie Squares

Here's a recipe from those 70's newspaper clippings that I ran across the other day. It got mixed reviews from those in my household. I really liked it topped with a tablespoon of French Vanilla Cool Whip.
The rest of my bunch aren't big pumpkin lovers like I am so they would have preferred CHOCOLATE anything over pumpkin.
So their vote DOESN'T count!

Pumpkin Pie Squares

1/2 cup oats                 Mix until crumbly & press into
1/2 cup brown sugar     a 13X9. Bake 15 minutes at 350

2 cups pumpkin                    
1 can evaporated milk          Combine filling ingredients
2 eggs                                  & pour over baked crust.

1 tsp. cinnamon                    for 20 minutes.
1/2 tsp. ginger
1/4 tsp. cloves

1/2 cup oatmeal                   Combine and sprinkle over
1/2 cup brown sugar             filling. Return to oven and
