Fall Tradition

Beginning in September, the kids start saying, "It's almost time for Pumpkin Bars!" This is a FAVORITE treat that I began making years ago around the first of October. They are super easy, & everybody seems to like them (hey, how can you not like something that is covered in cream cheese frosting!?!?). Enjoy!!
4 eggs
1 2/3 c. sugar
1 c. oil
16 oz. can pumpkin
2 c. flour
2 tsp. baking powder
2 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
Beat eggs, sugar, oil & pumpkin. Add dry ingredients; mix well. Spread in ungreased 15 x 10 x 1 pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes.
3 oz. cream cheese, softened
1/4 c. butter, softened
1 tsp. vanilla
2 c. powdered sugar
Beat until smooth & spread over cooled pumpkin bars.
