Day 17 Pumpkin Bars
These pumpkin bars taste a lot more like cake than bars to me. They are extremely moist and very yummy! I brought them to an event and most people were eating them with a fork. So in that way they were not what I was expecting, but they were very good!
1 2/3 cups white sugar
1 cup vegetable oil
1 15 ounce pumpkin puree
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese,
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1-2 tablespoon milk
2- 2 1/2 cups sifted confectioners' sugar
3 tablespoons Pampered Chef Sweet Cinnamon Sprinkle
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
2. In a medium bowl, mix the eggs, sugar, oil, and pumpkin with mixer. Add the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice and salt. Stir into the pumpkin mixture until thoroughly combined.
3. Spread the batter evenly into Pampered Chef Large Stone Bar Pan. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes in preheated oven. Cool on cooling rack before frosting.
4. While bars are cooking make frosting. Combine all ingredients in mixer. You can add more sugar to get frosting to the best spreadable texture. It shouldn't be to runny or too stiff. After frosting the bars generously sprinkle with Sweet Cinnamon Sprinkle.
