October Bakin' Friends!

October has flown by and it's time for another Bakin' Friends post!  This month I received a yummilicious package from Dawn Perkowski, my October Bakin' Friend.  The secret ingredient for October was pumpkin and I couldn't wait to see what she would be sending me.  I was actually home when her package arrived and I doubt my mail carrier has seen a happier person answer their door when receiving something in the mail!

I immediately opened the package and came upon this adorable box


But I must confess, when I took the pictures of the cute red and white polka dot box, I had already eaten a few of the bars :)  They are DELISH!!  Especially with a nice cup of hot tea.

Dawn carefully wrapped each bar individually and this time, I actually summoned my elusive self control and only ate one bar at each tea break.  I just won't say how many tea breaks I take during the day :)  She used vanilla chips in my bars but assured me they are just as good with butterscotch.  She included a very sweet note and a recipe card so I can share the recipe with my friends and family.

  They are so moist and pumpkin-y, perfect for the fall season.

I could totally see these on a Thanksgiving buffet or as a hostess gift if you are lucky enough to be a guest at someone's house on turkey day.

Dawn said she got the recipe from The Baker Chick.  Here's a link to the recipe:

I highly recommend these bars for any occasion.  They will definitely satisfy any pumpkin cravings you may have.  In fact, make a batch and keep them in your freezer.  Then you'll never have to go without!

Dawn, thank you so much for these delicious bars!
