Pumpkin Bars

It’s crazy to me that Thanksgiving is just around the corner. I always have my staples that I make around the holidays, and then I like to throw in a few newer ones as well. I was going through some old family recipes and came across pumpkin bars. Tis the season, and my family loves everything pumpkin, I knew I had to make it and share with you. Please check out the recipe below. 

Bar Ingredients

4 eggs

1 cup olive oil

2 cups sugar

1 can pureed pumpkin (2 cups)

2 cups flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

1 teaspoon baking soda

Pinch of salt

2 teaspoons cinnamon 

1/2 teaspoons ginger

½ teaspoon cloves

½ teaspoon nutmeg

Frosting ingredients

¾ stick butter (6 tablespoons) 

6 oz softened cream cheese

2 cups powdered sugar

2 teaspoons vanilla



Preheat oven to 350

Take out cream cheese and butter, set aside and let sit to soften

Mix eggs, oil, sugar and pumpkin in a bowl 

In a large mixing bowl add all dry ingredients and add to the wet ingredients and mix together

Pour into a large cookie sheet and bake for 23-30 mins 

Let chill completely before putting frosting on


Make sure the cream cheese and butter are nice and soft. 

Cream the cream cheese and butter together and mis in vanilla
