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.
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.
Combine pumpkin, sweetened condensed milk, eggs, pumpkin pie spice, vanilla, and remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt. Spread over baked crust. Combine reserved 1/2 cup flour mixture and nuts. 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'm going to try an apple something or another in the next few days after we finish that yummy pumpkin bread! If you can't tell by now, I have a major sweet tooth! Always have to have something sweet in the house!
