Wow, these went over huge! I took them to a party and gave one to my sister--everyone raved about them. Saved the recipe. So delicious and moist. One thing--I would rename it a cake. Not bar-like at all.

Very good, everyone liked these a lot. Really more like cake than bars. I prefer mine a bit more dense, more bar-like, but if you are looking for a cakey-type pumpkin bar recipe this is a great one. Nice balance of flavors and a snap to make. Thanks for a yummy fall treat!

Made this as directed. The frosting I only used 2 cups and a shake or two more from the bag of powdered sugar. I used Splenda for the sugar in the bars and didn't change anything else. MMMM GOOD!
