Pumpkin spice bars ::recipe::

November 3, 2011

Think::  Moist, sweet, slightly spicy crumbs everywhere.  Thick delicious creamy homemade vanilla icing, simply oozing off the thick soft pumkiness.

Yeah, it's that good.

And by the way, you can make it too!  Here's the recipe:

{Pumpkin Spice Bars}

4 eggs
2 c. sugar
1 c. oil
1 16 oz. can of pumpkin
2 c. flour
2 tsp. baking powder
2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. ground ginger
1/4 tsp. ground cloves

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour a 11 x 18 cake pan.
Blend together wet ingredients and the sugar in a large bowl until smooth.  Stir in flour, baking powder, cinnamon, baking soda, salt, ginger, and cloves.  Spread into cake pan gently.  Bake for 25-30 minutes or until a nice orangish brown.  Let it cool completely in it's pan before icing.

{Cream Cheese Icing}


3 oz. cream cheese, softened
1/3 c. butter
1 tsp. vanilla
2 c. powdered sugar

Cream all the above ingredients together... and spread on cooled pumpkin bars.  Cut the cake to make about 40 bars.
*note* make sure the icing is NOT cold when icing the bars!

Hello again, Gabby.

I noticed this yummy-looking recipe and was wondering if you would allow me to use it? I have a blog for girls and every-other-month, we have "Bake on Wednesdays." This month, I am posting links of fall recipes on others' blogs and was wondering if you would let me do so for your pumpkin spice bars. I would also like to post a picture of the finished product so the readers could see what they look like. Would you let me do that? If not, then I will understand.

You may email me at rubieslikeruth{at}gmail{dot}com.
