I'm not sure where exactly this recipe came from, but it's been around for quite some time. My mother made this for us when we were kids. It's by far one of the best pumpkin bars I've ever had.

How to Make Paul's Pumpkin Bars

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. In a medium bowl, mix the eggs, sugar, oil, and pumpkin with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon and salt. Stir into the pumpkin mixture until thoroughly combined.
  3. Spread the batter evenly into an ungreased 10x15 inch jellyroll pan (can also use a 9x13 pan). Bake for 25 to 30 minutes in preheated oven. If using 9x13 pan bake for 30 minutes. Toothpick should come out clean. Cool before frosting
  4. To make the frosting, cream together the cream cheese and butter. Stir in vanilla. Add confectioners' sugar a little at a time, beating until mixture is smooth. Spread evenly on top of the cooled bars. Cut into squares
