Egg-free Pumpkin Bars with Cinnamon Frosting from JensFavoriteCookies.com - These will put you in the mood for fall!September is almost over, so I guess it’s time for me to hop on the pumpkin recipe bandwagon.

Which is not a problem.  I love pumpkin desserts.  The only problem has been that it has been unseasonably warm here, and it just doesn’t feel like fall yet.

This weekend, however, brought rain and lots of it.  A big storm even woke me out of a dead sleep, which is not something that commonly happens to me.  I can sleep through just about anything.

At any rate, the cool temps and overcast skies put me in the mood for pumpkin, and I dreamed up these pumpkin cookie bars and gave them cinnamon frosting, just for fun.

After I started thinking about them, I couldn’t wait to get started baking them!  I broke out the pumpkin right away.

One nice thing about pumpkin is it is naturally wet, which means you can use it to replace eggs in a baking recipe.  Lots of pumpkin recipes are sort of naturally egg-free.

Which is nice for the egg-allergy crowd.  Especially if they are also the pumpkin-loving crowd.

And who isn’t?

I guess it’s time for me to embrace fall.  I always hate to see summer go, but fall really is lovely too.

My dog is loving this fall weather.  He sits outside in the sun, and just sits there, and sits there.  It’s even better if it’s a little windy and he can put his face into the wind.

He’s probably in the mood for pumpkin cookies too!
