Why I Love This Recipe

If you refrigerate the bars after you make them, it helps set them up better. They are a great alternative to the traditional pumpkin pie

Ingredients You'll Need

2 c cooked pumpkin
1 c oil
1 2/3 c sugar
4 eggs
1t vanilla
2 c flour
1t baking soda
2 t baking powder
1/2 t salt
2 t cinnamon

3 oz cream cheese - softened
3/4 stick of butter
2 C powdered sugar
1 t vanilla


blend pumpkin, oil, sugar, eggs, and vanilla

slowly add dry ingredients - flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt and cinnamon

once incorporated, mix well

spread in 12x18 jelly roll pan

bake at 325 degrees for 25 - 30 minutes

while cooling in pan, make frosting

beat cream cheese, butter, powdered sugar, and vanilla until fluffy

Once bars are cool, spread cream cheese frosting over top.

If you let frosting set and cool slightly, the cuts will be much cleaner
