Pumpkin Bars

This post is for my sister, Kim, who will hit the half century mark on Friday.  Happy Birthday Kim!

We all have that one special recipe that we go to when we need to take goodies for a special event.  Pumpkin Bars is Kim's "go-to" recipe.  The only problem is she can't ever find the recipe.  Well, this post should fix that.  Just go to my blog and type "pumpkin" in the search box and this post will be at your finger tips.

2 cups flour
2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
2 cups sugar
4 eggs (beaten)
2 cups pumpkin
1 cup oil

Mix ingredients together.  Pour into a jelly roll pan.  Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes.  Allow to cool fully and then frost with Cream Cheese Frosting.

Cream Cheese Frosting
8 oz cream cheese
1 1/2 sticks butter (12 oz)
1 Tbsp cream
2 tsp vanilla
3 1/2 cups powdered sugar

Bring the cream cheese and butter to room temp.  Beat the cream cheese and butter with a mixer until fluffy. Add the liquid ingredients and the powdered sugar.  Mix well.
