Amazing Pumpkin Bars with Maple Glaze
I can’t remember when I first had these pumpkin bars. But I can say that they are really tasty! I do remember growing up with a similar recipe, cherry bars made with cake mix. I could have eaten them by the pan full. I’ll have to dig that recipe up some day soon. But until then, enjoy these little pumpkin bars.
1 pkg. Yellow cake mix- any will work
1/2 cup melted butter
1 (16 oz.) can pumpkin
1 (14 oz.) sweetened condensed milk
1 tsp. almond extract
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp. salt
reserved cake mix
1/2 c. sugar
1/4 c. butter softened
1/2 cup pecans, chopped
Remove 1 cup of the cake mix and set it aside for the topping. In a large bowl add the remaining cake mix, one egg (beaten) and melted butter, mix until it is well combined and crumbly. Press into the bottom of a greased 13×9 inch baking pan.
In a medium bowl beat the remaining eggs. Add the pumpkin, condensed milk, almond extract, cinna mon, and salt. Mix well and pour over prepared crust.
In a small bowl add reserved cake mix, 1/2 c. sugar, pecans and softened butter. Mix until crumbly and sprinkle over the pumpkin mixture.
Bake 50-60 minutes or until set.
