Pumpkin Bars

I found this recipe on Hoosier Homemade.  They are moist.  They are delicious.  They hit the spot..

Pumpkin Bars

  •     2 cups flour
  •     2 teaspoons cinnamon
  •     1/2 teaspoon nutmeg *
  •     2 teaspoons baking powder
  •     1 teaspoon salt
  •     4 eggs
  •     1 can (15oz) pumpkin (not pumpkin pie filling)
  •     1 and 2/3 cups sugar
  •     1 cup oil
  •     1 teaspoon baking soda


Sift dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt & soda) and set aside. In a large bowl, combine eggs, sugar, oil and pumpkin until light and fluffy. Add the dry ingredients, gradually. Mix well.

Spread batter in a greased 15x10x1 baking pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 – 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Cool completely.

  •     1 8oz. package of cream cheese *
  •     2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  •     1/3 cup softened butter
  •     1 Tbsp milk
  •     4 cups powdered sugar

Cream together butter and cream cheese until smooth and fluffy.  Add powdered sugar, vanilla and milk.  Mix on high speed until smooth creamy.

* i added nutmeg to the recipe because i think pumpkin + nutmeg belong together

* the original frosting recipe only calls for 3 oz of cream cheese.  i like a good frosting to bar ratio, so i made a large batch of frosting + included it in this recipe
