"This recipe was from my elderly neighbor and I loved as a child. She has long since passed away but whenever I make these the happy childhood memories come rushing back."

packed dark brown sugar
solid-pack pumpkin puree
1 1/2 cups
confectioners' sugar, sifted
grated orange zest
These were edible, but they did not turn out at all as I had hoped. These tured out light, crumbly, and cake-like. For the frosting I used fresh squeezed OJ from the orange that I zested. Again, following the recipe exactly. It had a nice flavor, but I personally did not care for the pumpkin/orange flavor combo. These would have been much better with a plain butter cream or a cream cheese frosting. This recipe was also poorly received by my family. I will not be making this again.
