Pumpkin Bars


I’m usually averse to putting vegetables into my desserts. The two just don’t mix in my opinion. With the exception of these pumpkin bars. Oh. My. Heavens. I love these moist bars with cream cheese frosting. They are so very “fall.”



1 c oil

4 eggs

2 c canned pumpkin

2 c sugar

2 c flour

1 t baking powder

1 t baking soda

1/2 t salt

1/4 t cinnamon



1 cup butter or margarine

1 8-oz. package cream cheese

2 t milk

1 1/2 t vanilla

8 c powdered sugar


In large mixer bowl, combine oil, eggs, pumpkin, and sugar. Add flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon. Mix on medium speed until combined. Pour into greased jellyroll pan (17” x 12” x 1”). Bake at 350°F for 25-30 minutes or until slightly golden on top. Cool.


Meanwhile, make frosting by creaming butter and cream cheese until smooth. Mix in milk and vanilla. Slowly add powdered sugar, mixing continuously until smooth. Spread on cooled bars.
