Pumpkin Bars with Cream Cheese Frosting

Pumpkin Bars

This is a huge moment.  I am about to make you very, very happy.  Because I am sharing with you something that is truly amazing.  This could be a life changer.

Many, many years ago a coworker gave me this recipe.  For pumpkin bars with a cream cheese frosting.  And let me tell you, they are so good.  Every year since then, the holiday season beginning for me on October 1st, that I love so much, is not complete without making these at least once.  I don’t even really like very many foods with pumpkin.  But I love these so much.  And now I am sharing this source of joy with you.  I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

Pumpkin Bars

  • 4 eggs
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 cups pumpkin
  • 2 cups flour
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tsp cinnamon

Beat eggs and sugar well.  Add oil, vanilla, and pumpkin.  Mix well.  Add flour, salt, and cinnamon.  Grease and flour or spray cookie sheet or bundt pan. Bake at 350 25-30 minutes for sheet pan, or 45-50 minutes for bundt pan.  (I have only ever used the sheet pan).

Cream Cheese Frosting

  • 3 oz. cream cheese
  • 2 T. Milk
  • ½ cup butter softened, not melted
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 cups powdered sugar

Beat well with a mixer until fluffy then spread over warm cake or cooled squares.

I like them best if the bars are refrigerated before eating and served with a glass of cold milk.
