pumpkins ~ gathering and eating

Bringing in the pumpkins,
a couple weeks ago before the frost...

"Who loves a garden still his Eden keeps,

Perennial pleasures plants,

and wholesome harvests reaps."
[Amos Bronson Alcott 1799-1888]

And, delicious and moist Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Squares made last week...

Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Squares

2 1/4 cups flour
2 1/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
4 beaten eggs
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup butter [room temp]
2 cups pumpkin filling {I used a 15 oz can}
1 cup chocolate chips + 1/2 - 1 cup chocolate chips

Butter or spray a 13 x 9 inch cake pan. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. In mixing bowl, cream butter and sugars. Add eggs and then pumpkin filling. Sift together dry ingredients and add to pumpkin mixture. Blend. Stir in 1 cup of chocolate chips. Pour into pan and bake for about 45 minutes. After removing from oven, sprinkle the remaining chocolate chips over the pan of pumpkin bars. Let melt, and then spread as you would frosting.
Enjoy!
