Fall Baking Favorite: Nutty-Caramel Pumpkin Bars

I couldn’t make it all the way through October without posting a pumpkin recipe here on Delish Dish! Since I waited so long, I made sure it was a good one. Nutty-Caramel Pumpkin Bars from the new Better Homes and Gardens cookbook, Bakingcombines pumpkin, pecans, and caramel in a dense, sweet, and irresistible bar with a luscious browned-butter frosting drizzle.

This might be my favorite Delish Dish recipe yet!

Seriously, one nibble of these gooey bars may turn into you consuming an entire row of the pan if you’re not careful. Or so I’ve heard… Either way, you’ve been warned!

Nutty-Caramel Pumpkin Bars are perfect for bringing to a potluck. Bake, cool, then stash in the fridge until it’s party time. Guests will rave over the pumpkin spice, crunchy caramel-pecan topping, and mouthwatering browned-butter frosting. Only you and I will know that they only took 10 minutes to prepare though.

Grab yourself a cup of coffee, bowl, and a whisk, and make these bars as soon as possible. Pumpkin season wouldn’t be complete without ‘em.

Oh, a quick note about this new  cookbook, Baking - if you are even a tiny bit interested in baking, do yourself a favor and pick up a copy. It contains over 350 recipes for everything from cookies and brownies, to cakes and cobblers, and also features 250 gorgeous photographs that will make you wish they’re scratch and sniff. This cookbook would also make a fabulous holiday gift for the baker in your life!
