Pumpkin Bars

This recipe made me decide that cream cheese icing was ok after all. These are delicious, if you like pumpkin.

4 eggs
1 2/3 cup sugar
1 cup cooking oil
1 16 oz. can pumpkin
2 cups flour
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp. salt
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
cream cheese icing (see below)

Beat eggs, sugar, oil & pumpkin, with a whisk. Mix dry ingredients in a separate bowl, then add to pumpkin mix. Pour into an ungreased 15″ x 10″ x 1″ pan. Bake 350˚ for 25-30 minutes. Cool completely before icing.

Ice and cut into 2″ x 2″ serving pieces.

Cream Cheese Icing
3 oz. cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 tsp. vanilla
2 cups powdered sugar

Cream butter and cream cheese. Add vanilla, mix well. Add sugar a little at a time beating well.
