Pumpkin Squares

This type of recipe is one of my favorites as it is one that my grandmother would cook She was always known to take a dessert to those family get-togethers or community dinners. I hope you enjoy because this is a tasty little fall treat that would be easy to make for your family and friends. I hope you enjoy

6 eggs
2 ½ cup sugar
1 ½ cup oil
3 cup pumpkin (from a can)
3 cup flour
3 tsp. baking powder
3 tsp. cinnamon
1 ½ tsp. salt
1 ½ tsp. baking soda

Beat together eggs, sugar, oil and pumpkin until light and fluffy. Add dry ingredients. Mix well and spread into an ungreased baking pan (13 x 18 x 1 cookie sheet). Spread as evenly as possible.
Bake at 350 degrees for 22-27 minutes. Check with a toothpick until it pulls out clean.

1 cup butter (softened…make sure it is soft so it does not make the frosting lumpy)
6 oz of cream cheese
2 tsp. vanilla
4 cups powdered sugar

Beat butter and cream cheese together until smooth. Add vanilla and sugar and blend together. Spread over cooled pumpkin squares and keep refrigerated in the refrigerator until ready to be cut and served. You can add nuts as a topping if you choose.
This makes a lot of pumpkin squares. Half the recipe and bake in a smaller pan if you don’t want to make enough to share.
