Pumpkin Bar Ingredients

  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 cup vegetable or canola oil
  • 15 ounces pumpkin puree, (not pumpkin pie filling)
  • 4 eggs, room temperature
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Cream Cheese Frosting Ingredients

  • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt


Pumpkin Bar Directions

  • Preheat oven to 350°F and grease a 9 x 13-inch baking pan. In a large bowl, beat together the eggs, sugar, oil, and pumpkin until well combined. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, pumpkin pie spice, and salt.
  • Add the dry ingredients to the wet and gently stir until well combined. Bake for 28-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Let cool completely.

Frosting Directions

  • Beat the cream cheese and butter on high until smooth. Beat in the powdered sugar, vanilla, and salt until smooth. Do not over-beat. Spread on top of completely cooled bars. Cut into bars.
