I just LOVE baking when the weather starts to get cooler! I was thinking maybe we could share some of our favorite recipes here. And don't even get me started on Holiday baking. We'll have to do a special thread for all the cookies, cakes and pies that come along with the holidays too.

I'm making some pumpkin pecan bars today that I will share the recipe for. I'm going to make them first and let you all know how they turn out.

Here's the recipe:

PUMPKIN PECAN PIE BARS

Content Copyright © 2011 Cooks.com - All rights reserved.

1/2 c. butter, softened
1 c. firmly packed brown sugar
1 1/2 c. unsifted flour
1 c. oats
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1 (16 oz.) can pumpkin (about 2 c.)
1 (14 oz.) can sweetened condensed milk (not evaporated milk)
2 eggs, beaten
2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
1 c. chopped pecans

In a large bowl, beat butter and sugar until fluffy; add flour, oats, baking powder, and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Mix until crumbly. Reserving 1/2 cup flour mixture, press remainder on bottom of 15 x 10 jelly roll pan. Bake 20 minutes at 350 degrees.

Spread over pumpkin mixture. Bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes or until set. Cool thoroughly. Garnish with powdered sugar. Cut into bars. Store covered in the refrigerator.

I was the ONLY person in my family who liked pumpkin until my mom married my step dad. (My actual dad liked it too though!)

Just wanted to say the pumpkin pie bars are friggin awesome! I think next time I'll make it in a smaller pan of make more filling though because the bars were a little thin in a 10 x 15 pan.

Libbys makes a kit that I get every year at walmart. All you do is mix in the pumpkin, breadmix, egg, oil and water and pop it in the over. Its amazing and 1 box for $4.99 makes 2 loaves!!!
