MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 19, 2013

Made this for a holiday potluck. Followed the recipe and was not able to cut them into bars. Pumpkin was too soft and about 2 1/2 inches thick so it just fell apart. Maybe needed high altitude (NM) directions? How embarrassing! Opted to not participate!

I am about to make this receipe for the 3rd time this fall and it's not even Chirstmas yet! Everyone who tries it, loves it. This is my "new" pumpkin pie recipe. I make it just as the recipe calls. Sooo Good.

This was just ok. The blend of dry cake batter, melted butter and pumpkin didn't seem to strike the right balance.

A co-worker gave me this recipe a few years ago and it is wonderful . . . delicious and decadent. Easy too! I do reduce the sugar and butter by half to cut the calories and make it a little less sweet.
