Cream Cheese Frosted Pumpkin Bars
Submitted by Lara Farrar
Yield: 48 bars....
Ingredients:

Bars:

  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. each baking soda, cinnamon, and nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp. each salt and ground cloves
  • 1 cup oil
  • 1 (16 oz.) can (2 cups) pumpkin (plain)
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/3 cup chopped nuts
  • 1/2 cup raisins

Heat oven to 350. Grease 15X10X1-inch or 13X9X2-inch baking pan. Combine all bar ingredients except nuts and raisins; beat at low speed until moistened. Beat 2 minutes more at medium speed. Stir in nuts and raisins by hand. Pour into pan.

Bake @ 350 for 25 to 30 min. (45 to 50 min. for 13X9X2-inch pan), or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool completely.

Frosting:

  • 2 cups powdered sugar, sifted into bowl
  • 1/3 cup margarine or butter, room temperature
  • 1 (3 oz.) pkg. cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1 tbsp. milk
  • 1 tsp. vanilla

Combine all ingredients, beat until smooth. Frost when cooled. Cut into bars. Store in refridgerator.

(This frosting is made exquisite by replacing the 1 tbsp. milk with about 1 tbsp. Bailey's or Kahlua liqueur!)

I found the above recipes on the back of a raisin box! Yummy!
