This post is NOT a Trim Healthy Mama recipe. I’m human.
Nothing says fall like Pumpkin Bars with Cream Cheese Frosting. This is a recipe my family has been making since I was a very little girl. I love Trim Healthy Mama but this was my exception to the plan this week, and it was TOTALLY worth it.
Pumpkin Bars with Cream Cheese Frosting
- 1 c. butter, at room temp
- 1 2/3 c. sugar
- 4 eggs
- 1 (16 oz.) can of pumpkin
- 2 c. all purpose flour
- 2 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1 (8 oz) pkg cream cheese, softened
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1/2 c. butter, softened
- 3 c. powdered sugar
Preheat oven for 350 degrees. Mix the butter and sugar together until thoroughly mixed. Add eggs, mix well. Stir in remaining ingredients. Pour into a greased 11 X 15 bar pan (aka jelly roll pan).
Bake for 35 minutes or until toothpick inserted comes out clean.
While the bars are cooling, mix the frosting ingredients together. Spread frosting over cooled bars.
