I have made these today for the second time now and they are one of my fave bars ever! my kids love them and they never last more than a couple days around here! the batch is big enough to take to a pot luck or church function which makes it easy on me too! I made some changes but only slightly to make them more solid and less cake like as other reviewers suggested! I only used three eggs, 1 cup of sugar plus a little, i used shortening instead of veg oil because i ran out, i cut the baking powder and soda in half and added one tblsp of cinnamon, one of apple pie spice, or a little nutmeg, allspice and ginger. i also added a full 30 ounce can of libbys pumpkin I have made it before i had a jelly roll size pan and it worked great in two 9 by 13s! I made homemade crm chs frosting a little different, i always do. I had one package of crm ch, three tblsps butter, a fourth cup of shortening, one cup of pow sugar and about three tblsp of libbys pumpkin pie filling, just what i scraped out of the can after I had added it to the batter. it has just a hint of pumpkin and i sprinkled nutmeg, alspice and cinnamon on top of the slightly orange tinted frosting! SUCH A WINNER! wish i had more stars! OH and i added about a cup and a 1/2 of ghiradeli chocolate chunks this time which took them OVER the top! i was gonna use raisens but hubby does'nt like them and i knew he wouldn't eat it if I did that! heehee
