pumpkin bars

Hello!  Brooke here from SillyMamaQuilts and today is my turn to share in the Sew Full of Thanks event.  I realize the above runner is not really related, but every post needs a pictures, right??!

I decided to share a great pumpkin bar recipe with you.

Pumpkin Bars
4 eggs
1 2/3 cups sugar
1 cup oil
1 16oz. can pumpkin or 2 cups pumpkin puree
2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon ginger
dash of nutmeg and cloves

Beat eags, sugar, oil and pumpkin puree until light and fluffy.  Mix dry ingredients together.  Add to pumpkin mixture, stir.  Spread batter in a greased 15x11x1 jelly roll pan.  Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes.  Frost with Cream Cheese Frosting.

Cream Cheese Frosting
3 ounces cream cheese
2 tablespoons margarine
1 teaspoon milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 3/4 cups powdered sugar

Whip cream cheese, margarine, milk and vanilla until fluffy.  Add powdered sugar gradually, beating until smooth.  Frost pumpkin bars when cooled.

At my house, we make these often.  I am not gifted at making pies, so this is my pumpkin pie...

Personally, I try to remember to be thankful for each day and its blessings....Happy Thanksgiving!

Thanks so much Brooke!  If you haven't already, head over to enter her giveaway for a Silly Mama Quilts $20 shop credit!  and enjoy making some pumpkin bars!
