Frosted Pumpkin Bars (Gluten-Free)

Thursday, November 5, 2009

Gluten-Free Bar Ingredients:
¾ cup sugar
1 egg
½ cup pumpkin
½ cup oil
1/6 cup water
½ teaspoon salt
1 cup flour (I used ¾ cup Bobs Red Mill mix + ¼ cup tapioca flour)
¼ teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon each: ground cloves, nutmeg, cinnamon

Gluten-Free Bar Directions:
Beat egg and add other wet ingredients and mix well. Add dry ingredients. Bake in a glass 9” x 13” pan about 30 minutes until toothpick comes out clean. Bars will be a slightly browned. Bars will be very thin and moist. Let cool.

Gluten-Free Frosting Ingredients:
¼ cup butter
½ cup brown sugar
2 tablespoon milk
½ pound powdered sugar

Gluten-Free Frosting Directions:
Melt butter, add brown sugar and milk. Heat to boiling and cook 1 minute. Remove from burner and add powdered sugar, stirring until good frosting consistency. Spread onto bars.

Note: The frosting hardens quickly, so mix it up and spread onto bars immediately while still warm.

Happy fall!

That's the same recipe I use and it's wonderful! (I found it on the celiac listserv by Mary Burgdorf.) I call them pumpkin squares because they are so thin. I also skip the frosting, but I'm sure they are very tasty with it. :-)
