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.

How to Make Glazed Pumpkin Bars

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

Step-by-Step

  1. Combine canned pumpkin, oil, eggs, milk and vanilla extract in a large mixing bowl.
  2. Sift dry ingredients in a separate bowl.
  3. Mix until wet and dry ingredients combined.
  4. Pour into sprayed 9 X 13 pan.
  5. Bake in a 350-degree oven for 20 minutes or until springs back when touched in center.
  6. While they bake prepare glaze in a small bowl. Add nuts now if desired. (I sometimes do 1/2 with nuts for potlucks.)
  7. After bars are done baking, spoon glaze over top.
  8. Convert to broil. CAREFULLY (!!!!) broil bars until bubbly and beginning to brown.
  9. Cool. Cut. Give or share or pig out! Refrigerate for next day.
