Lancaster County Inns Recipe Favorite

Being an owner of a Bed and Breakfast or Country Inn has many perks.  One of those perks is the scrumptious recipes that cross our paths every morning.  Since an enticing breakfast is a big draw to our Lancaster County PA B&Bs, we as a group are constantly looking for quick  and delicious breakfast recipes.  Bed and Breakfast owners love cooking, eating  and sharing wonderful breakfast recipes.  The Hurst House located in Ephrata, Pa, one of our associations 14 B & Bs has shared her Pumpkin Square recipe.  Please enjoy.

        1/3 cup sugar
