Pumpkin Dessert Bars
Total TimePrep: 35 min. Bake: 20 min. + chilling
I made this recipe for my wife & she raved about it. My neighbors wants more any time I feel like baking. Yes I am the cook & the baker in my house. Love it. Love it. Bub, Vt.
I cooked the egg white/sugar mixture in a double boiler over simmering water, as one reviewer suggested, and it came out perfect. I found it took quite awhile to prepare this recipe and did make quite a few dirty dishes but the taste was worth it in the end. Thanks for the great recipe!
What a delicious dessert! I made this for a baby shower and it was a big hit. It did take a lot longer than the time specified, but I feel it was well worth it for a special dessert. I made two small changes. I added 1/2 teaspoon of nutmeg and 1/2 teaspoon of ginger and it really tasted like a pumpkin pie, but better!
Sounds fantastic!Question:Could I substitute in the canned pumpkin pie filling for the pure pumpkin and spices part of the recipe?
If you are afraid of salmonella, you can always use a meringue powder. Wilton has a great one that I use on occasion. Salmonella cases are way down, and I know where my eggs come from, so I'm not afraid of meringues. Just don't criticize a recipe because it contains something you are uncomfortable with. Make adjustments for yourself.
A new twist on a thanksgiving dessert .this will be the frist dessert to go .
Actually Meliska while your point is important in most situations it does not apply to what Sue Zappa said. Last Christmas I was watching Food Network where the chef was making (non-cooked) egg nog from scratch. I do not understand the chemistry of it, according to the chef you do not need to worry about Salmonella from uncooked eggs because when beating sugar together with eggs the sugar has the exact same effect as cooking the eggs...it kills the Salmonella. If still uncomfortable with it, use pasteurized eggs or pasteurize them yourself.

i really liked this dessert. it did take a long time to make but for something special it was worth it. it was different for a pumpkin dessert. it was fluffy and light. very good
To Sue Zappa... you are mistaken about not being able to get food poisoning as long as it is kept cold. The danger in raw or undercooked eggs is Salmonella, especially for children or the elderly, or anone with immune problems. Keeping it cold is no protection! Either make per the directions, or skip it!
