Bars were good, not overly pumpkiny. Next time I would add nutmeg and more cinnamon.
My family and I absolutely love these bars. They are moist and yummy. This recipe makes a large batch as well. The cream cheese frosting is wonderful- I use only 2 cups of powered sugar so it is not as sweet.
We needed a bar fast for church this afternoon and this one fit the bill. I added pumpkin spice along with 1 teaspoon of cinnamon. This is a very moist bar. I did not frost the bars, instead I sprinkled the top with powered sugar. Thanks Nezz for sharing this recipe.
