Pumpkin Bars

Over the weekend our friends Russ and Laura had us over for a relaxing afternoon of football, baseball, good conversation, and lots of food.  Since we don’t have a TV we miss out on so many great sporting events so it was really great to be able to watch the Stanford Homecoming game and the San Francisco Giants playoff game.  It was so fun to cheer on the Giants with friends, we are all so excited that they are going to the World Series.  Who would have thought it would be Rangers vs. Giants?

We had lots of tasty appetizers and ordered Chicago deep dish pizza for dinner.  We haven’t had deep dish since we moved last year so it was such a treat!  For dessert Laura served cute ghost cookies, Sees Candies, and a to die for graveyard cake.  It was so rich and creamy, I love how she used Milano cookies for the head stones, very scary!!!

Aren’t these ghost cookies darling!

I made pumpkin bars for the occasion, they were really simple to make.  You probably have all of the ingredients in your pantry so give them a try this week for a special Halloween treat!  Here is the recipe…

Pumpkin Bars

1/2  cup  butter, softened 
1-1/3  cups  sugar 
1-1/2  tsp.  baking powder 
1/4  tsp.  baking soda 
1/4  tsp.  salt 
2    eggs 
1  cup  canned pumpkin 
1/2  cup  dairy sour cream 
1/4  cup  milk 
1  tsp.  vanilla 
2 cups  all-purpose flour 
1  cup  chopped pecans or walnuts

Brown Butter Frosting
1/2 cup butter
3 cups powdered sugar
3-4 tablespoons milk
1 tsp vanilla 

Grease a 15x10x1-inch baking pan; set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, beat the butter with an electric mixer for 30 seconds. Beat in sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt until combined. Add eggs, pumpkin, sour cream, milk, and vanilla; beat until combined. Add all-purpose and whole wheat flours; beat until combined. Stir in 1 cup nuts.

Spread mixture evenly into prepared baking pan. Bake in a 350 degree F oven about 25 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool in pan on wire rack.

Prepare Browned Butter Frosting; spread over cooled bars. If you like, sprinkle with additional nuts. Cut into bars. Makes 48 bars.

Browned Butter Frosting: In a small saucepan, heat 1/2 cup butter over low heat until melted. Continue heating until the butter turns a light brown. Remove from heat and transfer butter to a medium mixing bowl. Add 3 cups powdered sugar, 2 tablespoons milk and 1 teaspoon vanilla. Beat with an electric mixer until combined. Beat in additional milk, 1 teaspoon at a time, to make a spreadable frosting. Use immediately. Makes about 1 cup.

After all of these goodies I will probably be on a sugar high for the entire week!  Good think Halloween only happens once a year!
