Pumpkin Bars with Browned Butter Frosting

I based this recipe on one my grandmother used to make—so sweet memories are baked into every bar. When making the frosting, carefully watch the butter and remove it from the heat as soon as it starts to brown. Do not use margarine.—Mary Wilhelm, Sparta, Wisconsin

I soon discovered why when I took a taste...and I'm not a fruit cake fan! My husband, who's the inventor of a three-point bale mover, and I have a grown son. I'm a crafter and collector.
