...then we finally stopped to have a snack...
We didn't buy any books or shoes, but we still had loads of fun. The girls drank hot chocolate and you can see Jon in the background waiting for my Cappuccino and his Americano.
And then finally... I know this is a long post so bear with me please... I have a recipe for you. Pumpkin Bars!!! These are so delicious and easy to make. I had one at a preschool party and could not get them out of my mind. I finally broke down and asked for the recipe. I'm told that this can be made with Bananas if you're not so thrilled about pumpkin.
I made these for a Christmas Party and everyone loved them. They're moist and remind me more of a cake than a bar. I think you'll enjoy them too.
Recipe from: A New Friend
4 eggs2 c. sugar
1 c. oil
1 c. oil
1 tsp salt
2 c. pumpkin (or banana)
2 c. flour
2 tsp baking powder
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp baking soda
Preheat oven to 350.
Grease and flour a rimmed cookies sheet (half sheet size). Combine ingredients in order. Mix batter after adding the sugar, then again after adding the pumpkin, flour, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Bake for 30 minutes. Let cool and then frost.
2 1/2 c. powdered sugar
3 oz. cream cheese (I use 4 oz.)
¾ of a stick of butter
1 tsp milk (I use 2 tsp.)
Allow butter and cream cheese to come to room temperature. Mix sugar, cream cheese, vanilla and butter in an electric mixer, add milk at the end. Spread on cooled bars. Sprinkle mini chocolate chips over top.
