In a large bowl mix together eggs, sugar, pumpkin & lemon juice.  Beat well.  Sift together all remaining dry ingredients & add to pumpkin mixture.  Mix well.  Pour into a well greased & floured 11 x 17 baking sheet.  Bake at 370 degrees for 12 minutes.

I am not sure who is going to get this comment, BUT... I was wondering if someone could help me out. I made the Halloween Sweet Chili Recipe from this blog... loves the flavor... however, I am trying to figure out what I did wrong. I followed the recipe EXACTLY to a "T" and it ended up being so "meaty" and hardly any juice at all. Is this the way it is supposed to be? I really did like the taste... just thought something was a little off with how I made it. Can someone check the recipe and see if it has the proper amounts of ingredients? Thanks so much.
