Pumpkin Bars

It’s fall. That means Halloween, Thanksgiving, and maybe it might rain like two days in a row in southern California.

AND IT ALSO MEANS PUMPKIN BARS. I AM SO EXCITED TO MAKE THESE AGAIN. I AM MAKING THEM TONIGHT.

PROBABLY.

Gosh that looks so good.

Here’s the recipe:

4 eggs, 1 2/3 cups sugar, 1 cup oil (or butter), 1 can pumpkin.

Add: 2 cups flour, 2 tsp baking powder, 2 tsp cinnamon, 1 tsp salt, 1 tsp baking soda.

Mix thoroughly.

Put in oven @ 350 F. (Until a toothpick comes out clean after sticking it in.)

I suggest a standard brownie baking sheet. Just mix the first line of ingredients, then add in the second line of ingredients.

This is for the frosting:

1 package cream cheese, 1/2 cup butter, 1 tsp vanilla, 2 cups powdered sugar.

Again, just mix all the ingredients. Melt the butter.

TOO. GOOD.

Oh, consider pairing the pumpkin bars with the KBC Pumpkin Ale from Trader Joe’s. It’s also good.
