Pumpkin Bars with Cream Cheese Frosting

Ingredient List
2 cups sugar
2 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice
1 cup oil
4 eggs
1 small can of pumpkin
3 ¾ cups powdered sugar
3/4 stick butter
1 8oz pkg cream cheese
1 tsp pure vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease or flour a 9 x 13 rectangular baking pan or 12 x 17 cookie sheet with higher edges.  You can choose to use the cookie sheet, if you want your bars to be less thick.

Sift together sugar, flour, baking powder, baking soda.  Add cinnamon (or pumpkin pie spice) and combine.  Add oil, eggs, and pumpkin – mix until smooth.

Pour batter into baking pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes.  You have the option to sprinkle with powdered sugar or frost with cream cheese frosting (see frosting recipe below).
