Pumpkin Bars

Pumpkin Bar Recipe


Pumpkin bars are the perfect spiced treat that can be served individually with no mess. Easy to make, you can also frost them with cream cheese icing for an extra bit of decadence. Pumpkin bars should be refrigerated to keep them fresh, but make sure you get one fresh out of the oven for the ultimate taste experience!
