Old World Pumpkin Bars

Yum



A friend of mine brought these beauties to book club the other day, and man were they fabulous. I'm a big fan of anything pumpkin, especially this time of year. But I had any kind of pumpkin bar except, well, regular pumpkin bars, the kind with cream cheese frosting on top. These are kind of a blending of pumpkin  and pecan pies. They are super delicious!

  1. when you say "canned milk" does that mean sweetened condensed milk or evaporated milk?
