There are SO many reasons we enjoy this time of year. For starters the weather is amazing, we can actually go outside without dying which means we finally get to see our neighbors! It also brings us closer to the fun holiday feeling. And it means we get to make these, are MOST favorite fall/winter treat, Pumpkin Bars! Here's the recipe for all you pumpkin lovers.
