These bars were so easy to make and they are incredibly yummy!! Makes a big batch, so it would be good for a party or big event!
These are very very good! Yummmmmm
This was delicous,it didn't even need the icing. Thanks for another winning recipe!
This is one of the best pumpkin recipes I've ever tried. So moist and delicious -- just fabulous! I mixed the dry ingredients separately, however, assembling the recipe in a more traditional way.
I made these bars in smaller pans and the recipe turned out great! I will definitely make these again. The frosting tasted just like cream cheese frosting. Delicious!
I baked in a 13x9 and added 10 minutes on to the bake time. These bars are moist and delicious. I love the spices.
I made those for my daughter to take to work. Plus us. They are so good. Makes a nice gift.
I honestly don't understand all the raves and stars. This was just okay. Didn't have the size pan called for, mine was a little smaller. This made the "bars" almost like a cake and almost 2 inches high. Was very moist but just didn't do it for me. I substituted cream cheese icing though and that saved them.
I have made this recipe numerous times.......its the BEST!!....its decadent....and it makes SO MUCH!!! We enjoy some and I package up the rest of the squares and take it to some of my neighbours during Thanksgiving..... (I put a bit more cloves and cinnamon in) C. Reinheller
quick and easy to make...very moist and flavorful!! great dessert to bring to the various parties that arise during the holiday season :)
Very good! Moist and flavorful. Also, I made pumpkin buttercream frosting by adding 1/4 cup pumpkin puree plus teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice.
I made these bars for a Teacher Dinner during Parent-Teaher Conferences. They were so popular, I made them again for Teacher Appreciation Week. Our teachers do like treats! This was easy to make & delicious. It's great for feeding large groups. I plan on making another batch to bring to a large 50th Anniversary Party.
I thought the icing was too sweet, as did some of those I served it to. I increased the seasoning a little which enhanced the flavor. I'll make it again but will adjust the recipe to suit my audience.
This recipe was very good. Not overly spiced as the recipe may imply. Moist with delicious icing. A definite family favorite!

We’re entering a new phase in our life as new parents – the dinnertime meltdown stage (or the “witching hour” as I like to call it). We rush home from daycare, singing “Wheels on the Bus” as many times as it takes to keep him entertained on the 10-minute car ride. It’s the same song and dance when we get home, while his daddy finishes up work and I’m hectically trying to empty the dishwasher, make dinner and keep our little guy from hiding the dog food between the couch cushions.
Bring the bold flavors of
ginger and sesame to a
variety of meals.
Everyone’s first thought for a sports party is savory appetizers – but let’s not forget about the best part of a meal…dessert! Whether you’re feeding hungry kids or hungry friends, a sweet treat is always a welcome addition to your tailgating spread. More ...
