Love this recipe! The photo seems to show that there are chocolate chips in it? The recipe I used from here was perfect the way it read.
Didn't have the right size pan so baked them a little longer in my 9 x 13. Very tasty and rich. The frosting complements it nicely. Great quick dessert that gets raves from family and friends. You know it is a hit when you get recipe requests.
I thought the flavor was very good...I wasn't looking for a pumpkin pie bar so the spices for me were perfect as written. Great with coffee or tea.
This looked so good in the picture and a disappointment when consumed. The problem is thee is only cinnamon in the ingredients that give it no flavor. I expected more of a pumpkin pie taste. The 1st clue should have alerted me. I then compared it to another TOH recipe that had cloves and nutmeg and saw the problem right away. If you make it be sure to add the additional spices.
