I love fall! It's my favorite time of year with great weather and even better food- soups, apples, and PUMPKIN! I've been burning pumpkin candles drinking pumpkin beer and coffee, in hopes of making it feel more like fall. As I blog today, we are experiencing our first glimpse of short lived fall weather. Yesterday, I made Pumpkin Bars. I tried a great recipe last year and wanted to see if I could top them. These bars were delicious with the adjustments I made. The recipe included a recipe for cream cheese frosting, which I love, but Mike does not, so I skipped the frosting. It also called for using a 15 x 10 pan, which I don't have, so I used a 9 x 13 instead. My bars ended up fluffy and cake like, versus a more chewy bar. The flavor was delicious, just like fall. A few options for adding a touch of flavor might include chocolate chips or chocolate frosting. This is the first of several delicious pumpkin treats I hope to try this fall.
