Fabulous Food Friday #99

I can't believe that I am only 1 more Friday away from 100 Fabulous Food Fridays! WOW!!! And I think I told you all that I was going to have a giveaway so I've got something in mind!
I knew that I wanted to share this recipe for Pumpkin Bars today, but I didn't get the recipe until last night and I've been gone all day today. They are baked and ready for a picture I am eating one right now, but all of the good light is gone for the day so I will update this post with a pic when I get it taken tomorrow. Sound good?
I got this recipe from my SIL who got it from her Aunt Kathleen who is a fabulous cook! I've had them a ton, but never got the recipe until now. I knew I wanted to post it because it was perfect for my pumpkin themed FFF! Like this recipe and this recipe.
