Pumpkin bars with a tasteful pumpkin spice frosting

Yesterday I said I would share a pumpkin bar recipe for you.. so here it is!

Simple, tasteful, your house will smell life a fall  { even though yesterday was 90 degrees .. I was still digging it } & also a perfect frosting for these! It makes approximately 8 BARS. Perfect for your afternoon coffee or tea.. or along side your ice cream ;-)

She did a cream cheese frosting, I didn’t have any .. but this frosting pairs so well with it too!

  • 1/2 cup stick butter <– I used earth balance
