Magic Pumpkin Butter Bars are perfect for the fall season. Loaded with pumpkin seeds, white chocolate, toffee and oh yeah…pumpkin butter, these magic layer bars with pumpkin butter are divine!
So very quickly, as I have way too much to do, I will tell you what makes these bars so magical. It begins with their ease of preparation and ends with their lovely Fall flavor. I brought a batch to Zoe’s where I left them in the able hands of her boyfriend. I guess one exchange for the other, if you know what I mean! He happened to text Zoe that they were magical, so you will have to trust him on this. Of course he confessed to me that he also has a cookie and cake addiction, which means we have something in common. What we don’t have in common is that he is tall and thin and well….I am just the opposite.
I took lots of “great” pics on the trip and even put a few on Instagram. My daughter finally feels I am entering the modern world! This involved getting rid of my flip phone which now means I need to learn something new! And if you tried to follow me on Instagram I had the follow name wrong. Mine is This_Is_How_I_Cook. What a hassle to type, so I will get a button soon! But I did take lots of photos of us having fun! I’ve never seen so many pumpkins in my life in PA, nor have I seen so many people picking them!
We also had a super time at the bed and breakfast. Check out Hamanassett, when you have a chance. Glenn and Ashley are fantastic hosts!
It was a close, quaint getaway from Philly. On the way we stopped and did some apple slinging, and some apple picking. Everyone picks apples carrying their Michael Kors bags, don’t they?
