When All Else Fails....

... post a recipe. Right? I have been sitting here for a bit now trying to decide what to blog about this morning. We woke up to a few inches of snow which was very unexpected and for some reason snow puts me in the mood to bake. I have no idea why. So I've been thinking of baking and decided to post one of my favorite recipes. It was passed to me by a family member so I'm not sure of it's origin. It is, however, delish!

Happy Baking!

Pumpkin Bars

4 eggs

1 2/3 cups sugar

1 c vegetable oil

1 (15 ounce) can of pure pumpkin puree

2 c all purpose flour

2 tsp baking powder

1 tsp baking soda

2 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp salt


1 (3 ounce) package cream cheese (softened)

½ c butter

1 tsp vanilla extract

2 c sifted confectioners’ sugar

1) Preheat oven to 350

2) In a medium bowl, mix the eggs, sugar, oil and pumpkin with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. Stir into pumpkin mixture until thoroughly combined.

3) Spread the batter evenly into an ungreased 10x15 inch jellyroll pan. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes in preheated oven. Cool before frosting

4) To make the frosting, cream together the cream cheese and butter. Stir in vanilla. Add confectioners’ sugar a little at a time, beating until mixture is smooth. Spread evenly on top of cooled bars. Cut into squares
