All Things Fall (Plus 2 Great Autumn Recipes!)

And now, 2 of my favorite Fall recipes:

Pumpkin Bars w/ Cream Cheese Frosting:
4 eggs                                                                                
1 C. oil
1 (16 oz.) can pumpkin
1 2/3 C. sugar
2 C. flour
2 tsp. baking powder
2 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt

Cream eggs, oil, pumpkin and sugar together. Stir together remaining ingredients and add to the creamed mixture. Bake in 15x10x1 inch pan for 350 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes. Frost with following recipe.

4 oz. cream cheese
1/2 stick butter, softened
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
1 lb. powdered sugar
1 tsp. milk (plus maybe a little more)

Mix together and spread over pumpkin bars. Put bars in the fridge 15 minutes before cutting. Yum!

Caramel Dip for Apples:
1/2 C. butter
1 C. brown sugar
dash of salt
1/2 C. light corn syrup
1/2 C. sweetened condensed milk
1/2 tsp. vanilla

Mix all ingredients together and bring to a boil. Dip with fresh, crisp apple slices. SO much better than store-bought caramel!!

Have a happy Fall, everyone!
