GOOEY BUTTER PUMPKIN BARS


I am glad I live in a world with Octobers.  The month of October truly has the most beautiful light.  And the reds, oranges, and yellows of the season make it particularly beautiful.

I do love summer, but I love fall just as much.  

My two favorite months are June . . . and October.




I've always loved pumpkins and scarecrows and caramel apples.


This Gooey Butter Cake recipe has been around for many years.  The original recipe I used was in a cookbook that my church sold as a fundraiser so many years ago, I can't even remember when.  I'm going to guess the early 80's.

I have made different versions of this delicious recipe through the years, but I believe this one is my very favorite.  


If you don't want to put a pumpkin on top of each bar, a pecan half is perfect.
