These were delicious. However, I tasted the batter before cooking and was worried that it might be a little bland so I added more cinnamon, nutmeg, and some allspice. It was great. Also wanted to save some calories so rather than layer on the icing, I used an icing bag to make some pretty designs so you got the flavor without all the calories. Yummy

I just made this for the 3rd time since Thanksgiving 2014.....It is the best "cake" ever! I say cake because I add and extra egg and I replace the veg oil with coconut oil. I also agree with another post and use 1 teaspoon of allspice along with the 2 teaspoons of cinnamon. The frosting is heavenly and creamy. Not supposed to be like a hard cake frosting....it just glides over the cake and is creamy heaven! a can't miss recipe indeed. And is so forgiving to your own tweeks and flavors. Next time I think I will add dried cranberries or raisins!

yummy! These pumpkin bars are so good. I subbed 3/4 cup of Applesauce and 1/4 cup of oil for the cup of veggie oil and it turned out great. Very moist and delicious. Thanks for posting this wonderful recipe.

I made these pumpkin bars this afternoon exactly as the recipe stated. My husband and I thought these were moist and delicious. This will be a new favorite Thanksgiving Day dessert for our family!

These were very, very good. The cake part was delicate and fluffy, and the pumpkin was refreshingly light. I let these cool in my kitchen, and my family started to gobble them up before I even had a chance to frost them. So I know they're great as a plain treat, and I expect they're even better when frosted (as the recipe directs).
