Nancy’s Pumpkin Bars

Nancy's Pumpkin Bars

In all of my family recipe cards and books, this recipe was listed as “Nancy’s Pumpkin Bars”.  Nancy is our aunt and one of the many talented bakers that I want to be like when I grow up.  This recipe came into the family years and years ago. They are one of the most delicious concoctions on this whole entire Earth.  I remember my family freezing individual bars and we would eat them right out of the freezer.  As weird as it sounds, I almost prefer them that way.  It’s rare that when I make these there are leftovers, but when there are, I wrap them individually and stick them in the freezer.  TOTAL AND UTTER NOSTALGIA!  I know that sounds strange, but try it for yourself!

      1. I have made this recipe for a long time.
        I beat the 4 eggs first……
        ALso I add 2 tsp cinnamon….not one.
        AND i add 1/4 tsp cloves and 1/4 tsp nutmeg..and chopped walnuts.
        Makes a big pan…the jelly roll pan.
        Leftovers freeze very well.
        Good with coffee or milk !
