Yummy, Yummy, Yummy I Got Love In My Tummy...

In sticking with the pumpkin theme I started for myself earlier this week, I once again searched the net for a new recipe I hadn't tried. I came across this one on the Allrecipes website. It was a fairly easy recipe and let me tell you...Aside from the fact that I accidentally burned the cookie crust, these were excellent! It was like eating a pumpkin pie! I ate around the burned crust and it was just like a pumpkin pie minus the pie crust. I topped mine with a little cool whip and viola! Instant satisfaction. I cooked them for the time required, but I guess my oven is hotter than I thought it was. I really liked these bars and am definitely going to have to make them again, but this time I will have to adjust the cooking time accordingly. These are definitely a treat to tide you over until Thanksgiving when the real pumpkin pie is made. Enjoy!

Those look scrumptious...Joan made something like this for us once, but I think the cake mix was sprinkled on top or something. We loved it.c

I just took out of oven these incredible delicious golden pumkin bars. Thank you so much for the recipe. They are the best pumkin bars I tried so far. I have my own bilingual cooking blog www.allastar.net/blog and I will post this recipe on blog.

Nifty-awesome. The only other pumpkin-pie-ish tasty treat I've found is a custard...and that's not half as exciting as bars! Thanks!
