Pumpkin Bars with Cream Cheese Frosting are moist, yet light and fluffy. Pair this with the delectable creamy frosting with just a hint of tang and you have our favorite fall favorite dessert at our house.
In a mixing bowl, use a mixer to mix the eggs, sugar and oil until the sugars are dissolved. Then fold in the pumpkin.
Combine the dry ingredients before adding to the wet mixture. I like to mix by hand at this point. It only takes a few minutes to get everything combined.
Use a half sheet pan. Prepare the sheet pan witheither a spray oil or a piece of parchment paper cut to fit. If you use theparchment paper, the bars can be lifted out of the pan and cut. It is a biteasier to serve this way, but I find cutting the bars right in the pan to beeasy too.
Bake for 25-30 minutes or until set. When you lightly touch the center of the cake bars it will spring back into place. They are done. Make sure not to overbake.
Cool completely before frosting.
