Pumpkin Bars: 

1 cup oil 

2 cups sugar

2 cups pumpkin

4 eggs 

2 cups flour 

2 tsp. baking powder

1 tsp. baking soda 

½ tsp. salt 

2 tsp. cinnamon 

Preheat oven to 350°F. Mix all ‘wet’ ingredients plus sugar together in a large mixing bowl until well combined. Add in all ‘dry’ ingredients except for flour. Combine. Slowly add in flour until mixed into a pale, orange batter. Grease a jelly roll pan, or a 10×15” rimmed sheet pan. Pour batter into the pan and spread until even across the entire surface. Place into oven and bake for 20-25 minutes. Leave to cool, then cut before frosting. 


12 oz. cream cheese, softened

½ cup butter, softened 

2 tsp. vanilla extract

Powdered sugar to taste 

Combine all ingredients except powdered sugar into a large mixing bowl. Beat until smooth. Add powdered sugar slowly, tasting occasionally until desired sweetness.
