Everyone loved these pumpkins squares! After reading the reviews prior to making them I decided to bake mine in a 11 x 16 cookie sheet. Because the other review stated that they were thick and more like having a piece of cake and I needed something that made a lot and was more like a "bar". I decreased the baking time to 20 minutes and they turned out perfect. Thanks again for the great recipe!

I took them out of the oven after 25 minutes. The cake appeared to spring back when touched. After allowing them to cool, I realized they weren't baked at all in about 3/4 of the cake. Putting them back in the oven.... Should have read all of the reviews...

I took the advice of others. I used 3/4 cup oil and baked it in a cookie sheet with sides for 25 min. It was fabulous with a cream cheese frosting.

More like a cake than bars or squares, but fantastic just the same!

Has a wonderful taste! Added walnuts and chocolate chips which gave it a more unique taste. Also used a cinnamon cream cheese frosting. Ends up more like a cake and needs to cook at least 5 to 10 minutes more than recommended. Still fabulous!

I made this for a church gathering and it turned out excellent, but it needed to stay in the oven about 10-15 minutes longer.

Very good and very moist. Everyone loved it when I made it for Thanksgiving, but this is more like a cake or pumpkin bread, not what I expected.
