MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 8, 2012

I also substituted pecans because I like the combination of pumpkin and pecans. So delicious! It took every ounce of my being not to eat the whole pan!

I have made this twice, once for my churches coffee bar & for a party. Both time it was gobbled up with yummy sounds., It's sure a keeper at my house.

I made this recipe over the weekend. My husband took some to work with him and said his co-workers licked up the bars in a second!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 17, 2011

I sprinkled cinnamon sugar over the top, and used pecans, because I am allergic to walnuts. I have already had 2 co-workers ask for the recipe! It's a real taste of fall!
