    Chabear01's Note:

    This is my baby sister's recipe for pumpkin squares. I have found other recipes that are just not the same--and if they aren't like Ruths, then they simply aren't anywhere near as good.

      The topping mixture was soft, not crumbly. I added 1/4 cup finely chopped pecans to the topping mixture and it was very good.

      I followed the directions using my spice mix and butternut puree from my home grown butternut in place of the pumpkin and butter in place of the margarine. Topped with a dusting of powdered sugar. This is moist and so good a must try recipe. Good going Ruth!
