Pumpkin Bars / Cream Cheese Frosting

I love pumpkin. When I was young and mom would ask what dessert I wanted for my birthday, it was pumpkin pie before chocolate cake every time.

Pumpkin BarThis recipe for pumpkin bars is the best I’ve ever eaten. It is incredibly moist and the taste is out of this world. I’ve eaten other’s bars and am always disappointed. But I’ve never been disappointed in this recipe.

1 C. oil
2 C. sugar
2 C. pumpkin (1 can)
4 Eggs

2 C. flour
2 t. baking powder
1 t. soda
1/2 t. salt
2 t. cinnamon

Mix together and put in large greased jelly roll pan. Bake 20 to 25 minutes at 350 degrees.

If you’re smart, you’ll also use this amazing (and simple) cream cheese frosting recipe. It will cover the entire pan of bars. I always make plenty because my family seems to like it better than the bars themselves.
