“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.”

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13-inch baking pan.
  2. Beat flour, brown sugar, pumpkin, 1/2 cup butter, eggs, cinnamon, vanilla extract, baking soda, nutmeg, ginger, and baking powder together in a large bowl using an electric mixer on medium speed until batter is evenly combined, about 2 minutes. Fold pecans into batter and spread into the prepared baking pan.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until edges are lightly browned, 20 to 25 minutes. Remove from oven and cool.
  4. Beat 2 tablespoons butter and confectioners' sugar together in a bowl using an electric mixer until smooth; beat in orange juice and orange zest until frosting is light and spreadable. Spread frosting onto cooled bars.

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.
