Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. In a medium bowl, mix the eggs, sugar, oil, and pumpkin with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. Stir into the pumpkin mixture until thoroughly combined.
  3. Spread the batter evenly into an ungreased 10x15 inch jellyroll pan. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes in preheated oven. Cool before frosting.
  4. To make the frosting, cream together the cream cheese and butter. Stir in vanilla. Add confectioners' sugar a little at a time, beating until mixture is smooth. Spread evenly on top of the cooled bars. Cut into squares.

These are a bit "cakey" for me - here is how I modified them to be PERFECT - and people at work obsess over them! I put in only 3 eggs, then instead of 15 oz of pumpkin, I put in a 30 oz can of pumpkin pie mix (I use Libby's). I then add an additional teaspoon of pumpkin pie seasoning to the flour mix, in addition to the cinnamon. I've got my baking time down to 27 minutes in my oven, which is just the point where the toothpick comes out clean for the first time. Then for the frosting, I add 8oz cream cheese, and double the rest of the frosting ingredients. PERFECT!

Ready for a wow-factor twist on this? I used previous suggestions to make this more of a bar-cookie consistency and added a bag of semi-sweet chocolate morsels at the last minute before popping into the oven. Simply awesome. I can see white chocolate chips, butterscotch, etc... let the sky be the limit. OH, AND, I cut sugar down to 3/4 cup and oil down to 2/3 cup and we didn't miss it a bit... why add calories/fat when you don't really need it? ENJOY THIS EASY AND YUMMY FALL RECIPE!

After reading the other reviews, I decided to try for a more bar-like result for today's picnic. I cut out one egg and ½'ed the baking powder and baking soda. I also added ½ tsp. of cloves and ½ tsp. of nutmeg. I thought they turned out great!! VERY moist, and exactly like I wanted. For the frosting, I used 8 oz of cream cheese and 3 cups of powdered sugar, which made about ½ cup more than I needed. A GREAT recipe!
