For Christmas we received a jar of Trader Joe's Pumpkin Butter so I decided to make Pecan Pumpkin Butter Bars:

This was an easy recipe and only look a few minutes!  This would be good for a Fall Afternoon Tea Party:

 Pecan Pumpkin Butter Bars:

2 cups flour, 1 1/2 (1 1/4 high alt) cups sugar, 4 tsp (3 tsp high alt) baking  powder, 1 tsp salt, 1 cup buttermilk,1 ½ tsp vanilla, 2 sticks melted butter
(1 cup), 2 cups chopped pecans, 1 ¼ cup pumpkin butter:
* grease and flour 9 x 13 baking pan
* preheat oven to 350 degrees
*Mix everything but pumpkin butter
*Spread firm batter into pan & spread
pumpkin butter on top &
swirl through with knife ***Bake 35 minutes

Looks delicious Bernideen. I haven't bought pumpkin butter for a long time.

The bars look and sound yummy. The teapot and cup have my curiosity piqued. They are both lovely. said...

That pumpkin butter is great on toast, I've never cooked with it, though. Good to know!
