Pumpkin Bars: Yummy Any Time of the Year

pumpkin bars

This is another one of the terrific recipes from the forums at Mommysavers.com (Pumpkin Bars via Mommy2Mercedes).  I made it last week and it was delicious.  I ate a whole row myself, and brought some to the neighbors.  However, at one point I forgot to cover the bars and my husband came home to find the bars that were remaining had no more frosting.  Our cats had licked it off!  (Gross, I know….  and such a terrible waste of good food!)
