Pumpkin Bars

Pumpkin Bars | This dessert is a classic! Moist, pumpkiny bars with a cream cheese frosting that can't be beat! #recipe #dessert #pumpkin

It is not traditional "pumpkin season" right now, but you know what...I'm NOT okay with that. Pumpkin, for me, is a year round thing. This recipe is a very popular one - you've probably seen it on a million food blogs or one of your family members has probably made it for years. It's as common as pumpkin pie. But even if they are common/popular, I did make them and wanted to share them because that's what I do!

If you haven't seen these or made them, then you're in for a treat! These tasty little squares are pumpkiny, moist and loaded with a cream cheese frosting :)

What you need:
For the bars:
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 2/3 cups sugar
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 can (15 oz.) pumpkin puree
  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
For the icing:
  • 8 oz. cream cheese, softened
  • 1 stick butter, softened
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  1. For the bars: Mix together eggs, sugar, oil, and pumpkin with an electric mixer or stand mixer until fluffy.
  2. In a separate bowl, mix flour, baking powder, cinnamon, salt, and baking soda.
  3. Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients gradually at a low speed. Mix until smooth.
  4. Pour batter into a greased 9x13-inch glass dish. Bake at 350* for about 30 minutes.
  5. Cool completely before putting the icing on it.
  6. For the icing: Beat cream cheese and butter together until smooth.
  7. Then add sugar until combined. Add vanilla and mix again. 
  8. Spread icing on cooled bars. Cut into squares.
