Fall has officially arrived here in the Midwest and I'm embracing it with open arms as always. Usually when August 1st hits, I'm looking for fall. Life slows down a bit and it seems like instantly I start to enjoy life a bit more. Last night I baked the pumpkin bars my family has been making for years and they are just so great I had to share the goodness here.

Pumpkin Bars

4 eggs

1/4 cup oil

15 oz. can of pumpkin

2 tsp. baking powder

pinch of salt

1 2/3 cup sugar

1/2 cup margarine

2 cups flour

1 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp baking soda

Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes in 15"x10" pan. (I baked mine in an 8"x11" and they needed to bake for about 10-15 minutes longer)


1 3 oz pkg of cream cheese, softened

1/2 cup butter, softened

1 tsp vanilla

2 cups powdered sugar

Frost the bars after letting them cool.

Happy Fall everyone.
