Pumpkin Bars

Is it too late for pumpkiny treats?

Is pumpkiny a word?

Either way, these pumpkin bars are delicious. To be totally honest, I didn't really like pumpkiny things before I made these. (Didn't I just say that about blueberries? This has been a life-changing month, I suppose!) I even worked at a pumpkin patch, and I didn't like pumpkin treats!

All of that has changed. These pumpkin bars are superfacil (also not a word, but Spanglish for "super easy"!) and superdelicious! I originally got these from my pastor's wife, Christie (who is an amazing cook - I wish she had time to blog!).

I teamed up with my dear friends Rachel and Erin for a baking extravaganza about a month ago and we made these and some darling owl cookies that I'll show you soon.

This first recipe starts with butter. Unsalted, of course.

Mix together sugar, butter, eggs...

flour, cinnamon, milk, baking powder, baking soda, salt, pumpkin pie spice, and


After you've tossed all the ingredients in one bowl (how awesome is that?!), mix it until smooth...

and pour it in a 9x13 baking pan.


Bake for 30-35 minutes at 350 degrees. While it's in the oven, whip up some frosting! Powdered sugar, vanilla, milk, and butter....delish. :-)
Frost the pumpkin bars after they've cooled for a few minutes (if you can stand it!). These are seriously so easy, and they'll make a believer out of any pumpkin-hater. :-)

Here's the link to the original recipe on the Land O' Lakes website.
