A change from your usual bars, these are made with cooked pumpkin mash. They are very moist and so far I haven't found anyone who doesn't want more!
Delicious, easy to make, and reasonably healthy for a sweet treat. In step 2 my mixture never got to 'light and fluffy', it was a thick orange liquid but I continued and it worked perfectly. Yum! - 27 Jun 2015
These are a bit "cakey" for me - here is how I modified them to be PERFECT - and people at work obsess over them! I put in only 3 eggs, then instead of 15 oz of pumpkin, I put in a 30 oz can of pumpkin pie mix (I use Libby's). I then add an additional teaspoon of pumpkin pie seasoning to the flour mix, in addition to the cinnamon. I've got my baking time down to 27 minutes in my oven, which is just the point where the toothpick comes out clean for the first time. Then for the frosting, I add 8oz cream cheese, and double the rest of the frosting ingredients. PERFECT! - 31 Oct 2005 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Ready for a wow-factor twist on this? I used previous suggestions to make this more of a bar-cookie consistency and added a bag of semi-sweet chocolate morsels at the last minute before popping into the oven. Simply awesome. I can see white chocolate chips, butterscotch, etc... let the sky be the limit. OH, AND, I cut sugar down to 3/4 cup and oil down to 2/3 cup and we didn't miss it a bit... why add calories/fat when you don't really need it? ENJOY THIS EASY AND YUMMY FALL RECIPE! - 13 Oct 2006 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
