SPICY PUMPKIN BARS
Spicy Pumpkin Bars
Every fall I start to crave all things pumpkin. The delicate moist pumpkin paired with cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves makes my taste buds happy and warm. But when I think about my favorite pumpkin recipes, it’s this one that always comes to mind. It may have something to do with nostalgia. My mom used to make these bars every year around Halloween. Growing up in the country, we didn’t trick-or-treat (our closest neighbor was a half mile away and we were surrounded by a corn field!), but we had an annual harvest party. We would light a large bonfire, snuggle up with some hot cocoa and eat these until we were sick. Ahh, childhood memories at their best. Now when I share these with my own family, my daughters are over the moon about these bars too.
