Reader Comments, a Winner and a #Recipe!
Recently, we posted about the Jacob Bromwell All-American Flour Sifter. The comments were amazing from you all!! We asked if you had any recipes or foods which have been passed down through the generations. Karieann even shared a recipe for Pumpkin Bars in her comment and they sound amazing!
Paul's Pumpkin Bars
1 2/3 cups white sugar
1 cup vegetable oil
1 (15 ounce) can pumpkin puree
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon salt
1 (3 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups sifted confectioners' sugar
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
In a medium bowl, mix the eggs, sugar, oil, and pumpkin with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. Stir into the pumpkin mixture until thoroughly combined.
Spread the batter evenly into an ungreased 10x15 inch jellyroll pan. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes in preheated oven. Cool before frosting.
To make the frosting, cream together the cream cheese and butter. Stir in vanilla. Add confectioners' sugar a little at a time, beating until mixture is smooth. Spread evenly on top of the cooled bars. Cut into squares.
We'd also love to try Jennifer's crustless apple pie with a sugar cookie topping, Deb's noodle pudding (what is noodle pudding? sounds interesting!), and Tammy's chicken and dumplings! YUM!
Thank you to Jacob Bromwell for the fun with this review and giveaway and congrats to our randomly selected winner, Melissa, who has a family recipe for pork dressing. We really enjoyed reading all of your wonderful comments!
