Pumpkin Bars!

While I realize this picture isnt the greatest,,,I should have added a nice cold glass of milk, and a nice napkin and maybe even a bigger piece! tasted real good! In fact, it was quite addictive. This makes alot of bars so either plan on having company or loading up a bunch and delivering some to those you care about!

4 eggs
2 Cups sugar
1 cup vegetable oil
1 can pumpkin
2 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/4 tsp ground cloves----Add raisins if desired, which I desired ALOT OF!

Heat oven to 350. Lightly grease bottom and sides of 15x10x1 pan with shortning. In large bowl beat eggs, sugar, oil and pumpkin. Stir in flour, baking powder, cinnamon, baking soda, ginger and cloves. Stir in Raisins, spread in pan. Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until light brown. Cool

Frost with Cream Cheese Frosting which is the bomb!

1 pkg 3 oz cream cheese
1/3 cup butter
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups powdered sugar

beat cream cheese, butter and vanilla until smooth, gradually beat in powdered sugar 1 cup at a time. spread over bars!

Store in refridgerator! I'm going to be honest here, for some odd reason, I didnt store these in the i ended up having to toss half the pan. Thank God i got to eat half of them! These were very moist, very good, the frosting was great. Baldyman and I enjoyed these with cold glasses of milk.

2 Thanks for your comments!:
