    What size cookie sheet did you use? How thick are the bars?

    • Ruth says:

      Hi Jane… I used a 16×12 rimmed baking sheet and the bars are about 1/2 inch thick. Thanks for asking and I will go and specify in the recipe 🙂 These bars are super delicious!! Please stop by again soon. xoxo~ Ruthie

  5. I love the fall season and pumpkin recipes. I’ve never tried pumpkin bars, but I think I will now. Thanks for sharing! I also jotted down your Pumpkin Smoothie recipe!

    • Ruth says:

      Hi Julia, you’ll just love these bars and they are pretty easy to throw together. I don’t dare admit how many I ate 🙂 Thank you for the kind comment! Stop by again soon xoxoxo~ Ruthie

    Do you happen to know the nutritional information?

    • Ruth says:

      Unfortunately, I don’t. I’m sorry.. I just adapted my normal calorie and fat reduction techniques. Leaving out 1 egg yolk removes 55 calories and 186 mg of cholesterol. Cutting the butter in half from the original recipe saves too. I hope that is helpful 🙂

  10. I love your site! The recipes I’ve seen so far look amazing. I saw on Facebook that you’re attending the SNAP! Conference in April. I am too and I’m so excited! I look forward to following your blog and potentially meeting you at the conference! 🙂
