These pumpkin bars are super moist and scrumptious. My daughter and her friends love it so much. So whenever her friends are coming over I make sure I have made extra because they just can’t get enough of it! It’s a treat that they not only enjoy during Halloween but all year round. This recipe is pretty easy to make and delicious, it’s like a fluffy, bite-size pumpkin cake. Although sometimes, when I’m feeling lazy I cheat and just use canned cream cheese frosting and it is still good. This is no doubt a recipe that is worth making.
For the Bars:
1 2/3 cups of granulated sugar
1 c. vegetable oil
15-ounce can pumpkin
2 cups of sifted all-purpose flour
2 tsp. baking powder
2 teaspoons of ground cinnamon
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
To make the Icing:
8-ounce package cream cheese softened
1/2 c. butter or margarine softened
2 cups of sifted confectioners’ sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
