These pumpkin bars from Lucy with Greer's Markets will get you in the fall mood! They're cut into squares, making for an easy grab-and-go snack or dessert.

INGREDIENTS:

  • Cake:
  • 15 oz canned pumpkin puree
  • 4 large eggs
  • ¾ cup vegetable oil
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • Icing:
  • 8 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 6 tbsp. butter, softened
  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2-3 tablespoon milk

STEPS:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

For Cake: Beat pumpkin, eggs, oil, and vanilla in a large bowl with a hand mixer until well combined. In a separate bowl combine 2 cups flour, 1 cup brown sugar, 1 cup sugar, 1 tbsp pumpkin pie spice, 2 tsp baking powder, 1 tsp baking soda and 1/2 tsp salt. Slowly pour dry ingredients into wet ingredients until well combined.

Spread icing over cooled cake. Slice into squares. Store in refrigerator.
