Tuesday Treats

I like "theme" days! So I think we will have recipes on Tuesdays! Yay!! For our first Tuesday post, I will share my recipe for Pumpkin Bars. These are the best thing you have EVER wrapped your lips around!! They are very simple to make, but everyone will think you went to way more trouble than they are!

Pumpkin Bars
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
5 eggs, beaten
1 cup salad oil
2 cups flour
2 cups sugar
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups canned pumpkin (15 1/2 ounce)
1 cup chopped nuts (I like pecans)

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl. Mix Well. Pour into a large jelly roll pan (greased and floured) Bake for 20 to 25 minutes
Let cool completely and then frost with Cream Cheese Frosting

Cream Cheese Frosting
8 ounce cream cheese
1/2 cup butter or margarine (make Paula Deen proud here! - BUTTA)
1 pound powdered sugar

Mix room temperature cream cheese and butter together. Gradually add powdered sugar until frosting is the consistency desired

Now as soon as I figure out how to add pictures, we'll have some of them! Until then, Happy Baking!!
