Thank you for reviewing this recipe.
Everyone I make them for LOVES them. I ignore where it says to use cinnamon, and use my own pumpkin spice blend of cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, ginger, and cloves. I also add two tablespoons of maple syrup to the frosting. Other people who didn't think it had enough flavor are right. These two tips will change their minds!
The recipe is very bland, the only spice is cinnamon and it gives it no flavor at all. I will not even attempt to try making these again. I already found a different recipe from another cookbook that turned out perfect and tasted a lot better.
this is no blondie, this is a bad version of pumpkin bars! After one piece I threw them in the garbage. Not enough flavor, very bland, too much baking powder...I could go on and on.
Very easy to make, easy to double, and a great use for "part of a can of pumpkin" left from another recipe. Good for any occassion!
