Pumpkin Bars

Fall is in the air.  I love this time of year.  Cool weather, football games, homecoming and Halloween, oh what fun.  I made these pumpkin bars for the golf match tonight and they were a crowd pleas er.  They were like pumpkin bread with icing on top.  Super moist and just the right sweetness.  The only thing I would do different next time is maybe add some pumpkin pie spice.  I especially like them because they make a whole cookie sheet full.  These would be good for a bonfire or potluck.
