Every fall we make these delicious fall pumpkin bars. It’s a simple dessert that fits the season, and tastes great. I have brought these to our common meal after church several times and we normally don’t have any left to bring home. 🙂
Pumpkin Bars Recipe
2 Cups flour (you can use all white, or a blend of pastry and white)
1 ½ cups sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon ground cloves (optional, I normally leave it out)
4 beaten eggs
1 16 ounce can pumpkin (Aldi has the best price on canned pumpkin!)
1 cup oil
In a large mixing bowl stir together all the dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, soda, spices and salt). Add in the pumpkin and other wet ingredients. I just keep things simple and dump it all in together and mix it up. 🙂
Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 25-30 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean in the middle. Let it cool for 2 hours and then ice with cream cheese frosting. Depending on how you cut, they can make up to 48 bars.
Cream Cheese Frosting Recipe
6 ounces softened cream cheese
½ cup butter
2 teaspoons vanilla
4 – 4 3/4 cups powdered sugar
Mix the cream cheese and butter together, add the vanilla and mix. Add 2 cups of the powdered sugar (I just dump some in!) and mix together, Add the extra 2 cups or more as needed.
I hope your family enjoys them!
