This recipe makes a lot of pumpkin bars! It's very similar to a sheet cake (and some even call it that!). You can cut them into 24 large bars, or 48 smaller bars, when making in a jelly roll pan.
Yes, you can! Make the bars in a quarter sheet pan if you halve the recipe. This is a great option for a smaller batch.
