Happy Thanksgiving! A recipe for the holiday: Pumpkin Bars!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!  I hope you all enjoy your holiday.  If you are looking to whip up an amazing dessert tonight for your family and friends, look no further.  I made these last year and they were a huge hit!  I saw the recipe on the Food Network from Paula Deen, so  needless to say, they are not the healthiest things in the world...but Thanksgiving is a cheat day :)

Here is the recipe for Paula Deen's Pumpkin Bars


4 eggs
1 2/3 cups granulated sugar
1 cup vegetable oil
15-ounce can pumpkin
2 cups sifted all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Using an electric mixer at medium speed, combine the eggs, sugar, oil and pumpkin until light and fluffy. Stir together the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, salt and baking soda. Add the dry ingredients to the pumpkin mixture and mix at low speed until thoroughly combined and the batter is smooth. Spread the batter into a greased 13 by 10-inch baking pan. Bake for 30 minutes. Let cool completely before frosting. Cut into bars.  Frost with cream cheese icing.  Eat!!

Eggs, sugar, oil, and pumpkin...all combined!

Combine flour, cinnamon, baking powder, cinnamon, salt, and baking soda in a medium bowl

Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and start mixing!

Get it really fluffy!
Pour into baking pan evenly and place into the oven
Almost done!!
Cut into bars..time to ice!!
You can make your own, but I chose to make it easy on myself and use this instead

Spread out icing evenly by pouring it into a ziplock bag and cutting the tip

Ready to eat!  Enjoy!  And Happy Thanksgiving!!
