Pumpkin (Winter Squash) Bars

Naomi calls these Pumpkin Bars, “Cake.”  That should give you a clue to how they taste!  They taste great with a cup of tea, or as a not-too-sweet snack.  Although I definitely enjoyed them, I have a sweet tooth, and I think they might taste even better with a creamy icing, and maybe a sprinkling of nuts.  But they are still good, and a fun treat to make with all that cooked pumpkin!

This recipe makes A LOT of pumpkin bars.  I had to grab my ruler to double-check myself, because this recipe filled my two largest brownie pans.  Again, these yummy treats come from the Simply in Season cookbook.  (Maybe I should see if they’re interested in sponsoring my blog if I’m going to mention them so often?)  Enjoy!
