Pumpkin Pumpkin Bars

I made pumpkin bars (Note: there was a mistake in the nutritional info that has since been updated) the other day. Hubby and I absolutely loved them so I thought I’d whip up a batch for the coworkers to enjoy.

I thought it would be fun to use a pumpkin cookie cutter for the bars. I added orange food coloring to the frosting and piped it through a ziploc bag with a whole cut out of one of the corners. Everyone loved them!
For this batch, since I wasn’t going to be eating any of them, I used 1/3 less fat cream cheese for the frosting. It definitely lowers the calories and fat of the frosting some.

    Pumpkin is the best! It always says fall to me:) I ended up making my own puree this year and I really think it tasted better.

    I love this recipe also. I think, I should stop looking at your blog. You will keep me baking for weeks. I am not really complaining.
