Yield: 24 Servings
|2 teaspoons||Baking powder|
|1 teaspoon||Baking soda|
|1 cup||Oil; canola, or vegetable ---CREAM CHEESE TOPPING-----|
|3 ounces||Cream cheese; softened|
|¼ cup||Margarine or butter; soften|
|2¼ cup||Powdered sugar|
Bars: Preheat oven to 350~. Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, soda, salt, and cloves. Stir in eggs, pumpkin, and cooking oil till thoroughly combined. Spread batter into an ungreased 15x10x2" pan (i've used a 9x13 and they just come out a little higher). Bake for 25-30 minutes or untill toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool on wire rack, then frost with cream cheese topping. Cut into bars.
Cream Cheese Topping: Beat together cream cheese, margarine or butter, and vanilla till light and fluffy. Gradually add 2 c powdered sugar, beating well. Gradually beat in enough remaining powdered sugar to make topping of spreading consistency. Cover bars and store in refrigerator.
