  3. Combine melted butter and vanilla and add to mixture, then stir with a spoon until evenly moistened.

  4. Gently press half of the mixture into a greased 8×8-inch baking dish (a 9×9-inch baking dish would be great too, just reduce the baking time slightly as needed) and bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes.

  5. Meanwhile, in a mixing bowl, whisk together ¼ cup granulated sugar, ¼ cup brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, cloves, and salt.

  6. Add in egg, egg yolk, and vanilla and stir until blended. Mix in pumpkin then milk.

  7. Pour mixture over baked cookie portion and return to oven to bake 15 minutes, then remove from oven and sprinkle remaining cookie crumb mixture over the top while breaking the crumb into small bits. 

  8. Transfer oven rack closer to the top-center (not directly beneath but a few levels below) and return to oven to bake about 20 to 25 minutes longer until golden on top and center only jiggles slightly. 

  9. Remove from oven and allow to cool for 1 hour at room temperature, then transfer to the refrigerator to cool for 1 hour longer (or serve warm from the oven like a crumble with ice cream).

  10. Cut into squares and serve with sweetened whipped cream and a light dusting of cinnamon if desired.
