Pumpkin Bars

When I first moved to Omaha, my new friend Mary gave me this easy recipe for yummy Pumpkin Bars.  I made these Thursday and my girls were diving in before I even put the frosting on.
I took some to share with the preschool teachers - they were a big hit - very moist!!


Pumpkin Bars

1 cup vegetable oil
2 cups sugar
4 eggs, slightly beaten
2 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp soda
2 tsp cinnamon
1  15 oz can of pumpkin

Cream Cheese Frosting

3 oz cream cheese, softened
2 Tbsp butter, melted
2 cup sifted powdered sugar
add 1 Tbsp mil or enough to reach desired consistency

Mix first three ingredients and add pumpkin; mix well - add dry ingredients and mix well.  Spread into a ungreased ( I sprayed mine with Pam) jelly roll pan ( 15 x 10 x 1).  Bake at 350 for 25 minutes or until center is firm and a toothpick comes out clean.  Cool on wire rack.  Spread with a thin layer of cream cheese frosting.
