Pumpkin Bars

These pumpkin bars are a well loved treat. Our great friends gave this recipe to us when we lived in Kentucky. We had many a game night where we played games into the wee hours of the night gorging ourselves on these pumpkin bars. Seriouly, some of the best pumpkin bars. Thanks Mortensen's for the fabulous recipe!


4 beaten eggs
1 cup oil
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 cups pumpkin or one 16 ounce can pumpkin
1/2 tsp. vanilla
2 cups flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
2 tsp. cinnamon

In a large bowl, mix together eggs, oil, sugar, pumpkin and vanilla. In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt, baking soda and cinnamon. Pour the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. Mix together. Pour into 11X14 inch greased cookie sheet. Spread until evenly distributed. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Let cool. Frost with cream cheese frosting.

Cream Cheese Frosting
Mix together:
2 cups powdered sugar
6 Tablespoons softened butter
6 ounces softened cream cheese
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla

(May need to add 1 tsp. to 2 Tablespoons milk if frosting needs to be a little thinner. I've never had to add any milk.)
