Pumpkin Bars

Tonight, I was invited to a “Thought Forum”: a place for a group of people to get together and share thoughts, movie snippets, songs, poems, dreams, about a certain topic. (This month’s topic was “Dread”.) It’s kind of a potluck too, so I decided to bring a sweet treat. I love having excuses to make things. I swear, if I didn’t make things for other people, I would never make another thing.

So anyway, here was my first attempt at Pumpkin Bars. They were yummy, if I do say so myself!

Ingredients:
4 eggs
1 2/3 cup sugar
1 cup vegetable oil
1 16 oz can pumpkin
2 cups flour sifted
2 tsp baking powder
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp nutmeg
For the icing:
3 oz cream cheese
1/2 cup butter
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups powdered sugar
Step 1. Mix the eggs, sugar, oil, and pumpkin in a bowl.
