    I hope I get a better response this time than the last one I received.. I would like to know if these are very thin bars by using a cookie sheet.
    I did ask how many of the muffins come from the spice cake recipe using your organic pumpkin container. Never did get a nice answer. I’ve never used your website before.

      Hi June, We apologize for the delay! The recipe on the back of the pumpkin box makes about 12 muffins. This pumpkin bar recipe is not thin. It’s more of a cake consistency. We suggest baking these in a 9 x 13 pan. Happy Baking!

    Hi Emily,
    I apologize for my abrupt mannerism but there wasn’t enough infomation to tell if this makes 12 muffins or if the cookie sheet would make them too thin in the bar version. Thanks so much for the info. I can’t wait to try them. This is such a grea product The Farmers Market pumpkin. Do you know where to get the squash version? We con’t have it in our stores at least not yet. Thanks again.
