I was told (and agreed) that this recipe deserves 5 1/2 stars! We loved it, and I am making it again tomorrow night.
These are by far the best tasting bars/cake you can find when it comes to pumpkin. It is very good. I can't believe I haven't rated this yet. I made it exactly and will be making it again and again.
These are my favorite of all. I make mine into mini muffins and swirl the frosting on each one using a pastry tip. I couldn't get my hands on my magazine and out of desperation checked here. Lucky me, you did! Thanks for posting. It made 3 mini-muffin pans, 72, andthey were done approximately 13 minutes.
