It’s almost here. The first official day of Autumn is this month and even though I live in Florida and I know it won’t actually feel like fall for several more weeks I cannot help but be excited about it. I’ll hang the fall wreath my friend made me on the front door and pull out other autumnal decorations and at least pretend that it’s cooler outside.
A friend recently shared a Taste of Home recipe for pumpkin bars on facebook and since I am smack in the midst of an I-wish-it-was-Autumn moment I knew I had no choice but to make them. I used a smaller pan (9×13 instead of a 10×15) so mine came out more cake like than bar like. But oh, man were they good! They were even better after being refrigerated over night and that is saying something because they were pretty darn fabulous the first go round.
