Pumpkin Spice Bars
I found a recipe in a Raley's magazine, but found it wasn't all I expected. After some massive modification, voici! My first original recipe! My oven is unusually slow, so I recommend keeping a close watch on the time; it shouldn't be too moist, and it shouldn't be cookie-like either. Add chocolate chips for an extra kick!
