I like to think my grandma knew my destiny as the pun king.
If you’re anything like me, you’ve bought too much damn pumpkin for Thanksgiving. After making pumpkin pie for a Friendsgiving, I was still drowning in pumpkin. So I thought to myself, WWGJD? For those of you who don’t know, that’s What Would Grandma Joe Do. I like to ask myself this when faced with difficult situations. Stuck talking to a stranger in a waiting room? GJ would talk about the weather. Friend having a housewarming party? NEVER show up empty handed. Too much pumpkin after Thanksgiving? You always, ALWAYS, make GJ’s pumpkin bars.
Grandma Joe’s Pumpkin Bars
1 2/3 cup sugar
1 cup vegetable oil
1 can pumpkin
2 cup flour
2 tsp cinnamon
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
To start with, toss your eggs, sugar, oil, and pumpkin in a bowl and mix together. In a separate bowl, stir together your flour, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. In thirds, start to mix together your dry and wet ingredients. Bake that bad boy for 30 minutes at 350 degrees F.
And that’s it! It’s literally so easy that my grandmother could trust me to make these by the time I was in 4th grade.
Woo! Take that past Hannah who’s not that good at other things besides cooking!
Is you’re grandma a badass like mine with awesome recipes? And if so, would you like to shaaaaare?
