I have made these Pumpkin Bars many times and they are delicious. I get lots of compliments on them. I made them when I was visiting my daughter and her family and now my daughter makes them during the Thanksgiving holiday. Sharon, 10/29/2013
I make these every chance I get. stopped by today to reprint. the old copy has worn out.
This recipe is excellent! Not too sweet but the icing tops it off. Sometimes I sprinkle chopped walnuts on the top of the icing.
I made this recipe for a covered dish and it was a big hit! It was fast and easy to put together, and the brown butter icing really made the cake. I did not have cranberries so I used walnuts, and that worked fine. Will make again.
Excellent flavor, moist and delicious
Browning the butter brings out the flavor. Try it in one of these recipes.
