Pumpkin Bars

Thanks to Pinterest I was, once again, inspired to try out
a new recipe when I went home for Thanksgiving... 
4 eggs 
1 2/3 cups granulated sugar 
1 cup vegetable oil 
15-ounce can pumpkin 
2 cups sifted all purpose flour 
2 teaspoons baking powder 
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
8-ounce package cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
2 cups sifted confectioners’ sugar 
1 teaspoon vanilla extract


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. 
Using an electric mixer at medium speed, combine the eggs, sugar, oil and pumpkin until light and fluffy. 
Stir together the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, salt and baking soda.
Add the dry ingredients to the pumpkin mixture and mix at low speed until thoroughly combined and the batter is smooth. 
Spread the batter into a greased 13x10 inch baking pan. Bake for 30 minutes. 
Let cool completely before frosting. Cut into bars.

To make the icing:

Combine the cream cheese and butter in a medium bowl with an electric mixer until smooth. 
Add the sugar and mix at low speed until combined. 
Stir in the vanilla and mix again. 
Spread on cooled pumpkin bars and add a sprinkle of nutmeg for the finishing touch.

They were quite the hit, so make sure to try them out next time you are 
craving anything pumpkin.
