Saturday Do-It-Yourself: Pumpkin Bars!

Posted by on Sat, October 25th, 2014 at 11:00 am

Halloween is next Friday!!!!!! And for today’s DIY, we have a great recipe that will surely make any Halloween party you attend or host more delicious! It comes from PWSwagging of Freeport, NY.

I love the fall season with the beautiful trees showing their vibrant colors and the hillsides covered with pumpkin patches. Getting ready for a family reunion, I decided to share this delicious recipe with all the swaggers as my family will enjoy these bars also. It’s so easy yet so delicious.

Pumpkin Bars

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 4 eggs, beaten
  • 1 (15 oz) can pumpkin
  • 1 cup cooking oil
  • Powdered sugar
  • Milk

Directions:

  1. Stir together the first seven ingredients. Then stir in the pumpkin, eggs and oil until all is combined.
  2. Spread in a lightly greased 15x10x1 inch pan.
  3. Bake at 350 degrees oven for 25 to 30 minutes or until toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  4. Cool completely.
  5. Stir together powered sugar with a smaller amount of milk to make your drizzle icing. I usually begin with 4-5 tablespoons of powdered sugar 3 Tbsp. of milk and adjust to amount and consistency desired.
  6. After reaching your desired consistency, drizzle on top of bars before cutting.
  7. ENJOY

YUM! These look fantastic – thank you for sharing the recipe with us all!
