Pumpkin (OR SQUASH) Bars


2 c sugar

4 eggs

2 cups cooked pumpkin or squash

1 c oil

2 c flour

1/2 tsp salt

2 tsp baking powder

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp cinnamon (or more)


8 oz cream cheese

6 Tbsp butter, softened

1 tsp vanilla

4 c powdered sugar

1/2 c walnuts, chopped


1. Cook your squash. Let cool completely. Carve out the flesh. This recipes calls for 2 cups cooked squash.

2. Mix dry ingredients. Add all other ingredients. Then mix. Pour into a greased and floured jelly roll pan (basically a baking sheet, 1 inch high sides, wide and flat). Bake at 350 degrees for 20 to 30 minutes. Touch middle to detect doneness. Cool completely, then ice with powdered sugar frosting.

3. Frosting: Mix cream cheese and butter. Add vanilla. Add powdered sugar, a cup at a time. Spread frosting over bars. Sprinkle with walnuts (if desired). Store covered in refrigerator.

4. Cut into bars. This freezes well.
