Everyone asks for this recipe and it's November so... These stay moist forever!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

These pumpkin bars should have a warning label because we couldn't stop eating them! They are rich, moist and melt in your mouth. The cake part has just enough pumpkin spice without being overpowering. It'll be hard to wait until these finish baking because the smell from the oven is amazing. The glaze is the real star. It's sweet and forms a sugary crust when placed under the broiler. We added the pecans and loved the crunch. This is so good, it may even convert non-pumpkin lovers.

Note: Every oven is different. Ours took 28 minutes to bake, so we'd suggest checking at 20 minutes. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
