"These were simple to make and my husband really enjoys them"
"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 don't even like pumpkin...but I think these are so yummy!"
"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!"
"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!"
