These bars mix up quickly. They are moist and delicious with a wonderful cream cheese frosting. They are especially good when chilled in the refrigerator before serving.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a jelly roll pan.
  2. Beat pumpkin, white sugar, vegetable oil, and eggs together in a large mixing bowl. Combine flour, baking powder, cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, baking soda, and salt in a sifter; sift into the pumpkin mixture and mix well; pour into the prepared pan.
  3. Bake in preheated oven until center springs back when lightly touched, 35 to 40 minutes. Cool completely before frosting.
  4. Beat cream cheese and butter together in a bowl until smooth; add vanilla extract and beat. Gradually beat confectioners' sugar into the frosting, adding in small amounts and assuring each batch is incorporated before introducing the next. Spread over the pumpkin bars.

For me this was more like a cake than a bar. I halved the recipe and used 2 eggs but using more eggs generally makes things more like a cake. I used a 13x9" pan and store bought icing because I had some to use. While most of this went to the office with my husband, but I tasted a small bit and it really didn't taste like anything special. I doubt I will make it again.
