My Favorite Fall Dessert
When it's Fall my head wants something delicious using pumpkin and my favorite are these Pumpkin Bars. They are sooooooooo yummy. You can't eat just one.
2 cups sugar
1 cup butter (2 sticks), room temp.
2 cups canned pumpkin (1 15-oz can)
4 eggs, room temp.
2 cups flour
2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. each of cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, ginger, ground cloves
1/2 tsp. salt
Preheat oven to 350. Lightly grease a 15 X 10 1/2 X 1 pan.
Sift flour, baking soda, spices, and salt together; set aside. Cream butter and sugar until smooth. Add pumpkin and eggs; beat until smooth. Add dry ingredients and mix until well combined. Spread mixture into pan. Bake for about 20-25 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. Cool completely and frost.
3 oz. cream cheese, room temp.
1 stick butter, room temp.
1 tsp. vanilla
2 cups powdered sugar
Beat together until smooth. Frost the cooled pumpkin bars and then cut them into squares.
I always cut them in half, length wise and width wise. then cut them into fourths and go from there to get more even sized bars.
Enjoy and have a wonderful day.
