    I divided the recipe in half since I was only making it for the two of us. The next time I believe I would use pumpkin spice as suggested by other reviews. I would have liked a little more spice. I also believe it turned out more cake like than a bar. I agree that the frosting is what made the “bar” tasty. I will make it again only with pumpkin spice.

    Turned out great... the icing definitely added that something extra to make it perfect!

    Amazing. EVERYONE loved these. I did add 1/2 tbsp of pumpkin spice and did 1 1/2 tbsp cinnamon instead of 2 to the batter and a little bit of pumkin spice in the frosting and it came out delicious. Loved this recipe.

    These were a good, basic pumpkin bar. Something everyone will like. I will make these again.

    Cook time was too short, or is it supposed to be gooey when you take it out? I cooked 10 more minutes almost burnt the edges but or still tastes good on the insides

    Alright but, these are not what I would call bars. They are very cake like. Subtle pumpkin flavor and I added a tablespoon of milk to the frosting to make it easier to spread. Probably will not make again.

    Came out great! I had to leave it in my oven for an extra five minutes and added pumpkin pie spice to the frosting.
