Frosted Pumpkin Bars

Comment on this recipe

These bars are great in the fall for any occasion. The frosting makes the bars.

Ingredients

1 cup pumpkin, from a can
4 eggs, beaten
1 cup vegetable oil
2 cups sugar
2 cups flour
1 cup nuts or raisins, or half of each (optional)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 teaspoons cinnamon
Frosting:
6 tablespoons butter or margarine (soft)
3/4 pound powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon milk
3 ounces cream cheese, softened

Instructions

Mix first 10 ingredients together and pour in a large greased and floured jellyroll pan. Bake at 325 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes. Frost while warm. To make frosting, using electric mixer, mix all frosting ingredients, adding more powdered sugar, if needed. Frosting needs to be thick but spreadable. Frosting will melt on warm bars.
