Every time we make these pumpkin squares I have to take a plate to my neighbors. They absolutely love them! I made them for my bake sale and they were a hit. Some people even asked to buy a whole tray!
Yes, my neighbor was one of those people. I saved him two (large!) pumpkin squares too! Obviously that wasn't enough...
His obsession with pumpkin squares started about a year ago. While we were on vacation, he offered to watch our horses and cats and get the mail. How sweet :) To thank him for coming over, my mom and I made his family a tray of pumpkin squares.
