Yield: 24 Servings

Measure Ingredient
2 cups Flour
1½ cup Sugar
2 teaspoons Baking powder
2 teaspoons Cinnamon
1 teaspoon Baking soda
¼ teaspoon Salt
¼ teaspoon Cloves
4 Eggs; beaten
16 ounces Pumpkin
1 cup Oil; canola, or vegetable ---CREAM CHEESE TOPPING-----
3 ounces Cream cheese; softened
¼ cup Margarine or butter; soften
1 teaspoon Vanilla
2¼ cup Powdered sugar

BARS

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.
