Pumpkin Bars

As a kid, my mother didn't do much baking. I first tried pumpkin bars at my elementary school after a Christmas concert when all the families would bring bars and cookies to share. I couldn't believe how great they were! It's still one of my favorite bars.


4 eggs
1 2/3 c sugar
1 cup oil
1 (15 oz.) can pumpkin
2 c flour

Beat eggs, sugar oil and pumpkin. Combine flour, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Gradually add to pumpkin mixture and mix well. Pour into an ungreased 15 x 10 x 1 pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes. Cool completely. Frost.
