Made these for a dessert tray and it made approx. 70 1" cubes. I thought it needed to be just a bit sweeter--I would add 1/2 cup brown sugar to filling mixture next time--if serving with sweetened whipped cream it might be perfect as is. It makes a beautiful 3-layer bar.

I didn't feel these were sweet enough and they were really dry. I think if we would have had cool whip it would have made these better. I don't think I'll make them again though. We prefer the pumpkin bars or pumpkin pie.

DELICIOUS! I, too, wouldn't hesitate to add a bit more sugar, although it was great as written. I will be making this for two Thanksgiving potlucks this weekend!!
