Pumpkin Bars with Cream Cheese Frosting

This is a classic recipe, shared by my neighbor Cheri Taylor.  They were perfect--make a large jellyroll pan, cut clean, and taste especially good cold (keep them in the fridge)!

Pumpkin Bars with Cream Cheese Frosting
2 c. flour
1 1/2 c. sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. cloves

Mix all the dry ingredients (above) together.  Then add:

4 eggs
16 oz. pumpkin puree
1 c. vegetable oil

Mix together well.  
Pour into UNGREASED jellyroll pan.
Bake @ 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes.

Once cool, frost with your favorite cream cheese frosting.
(I use 1 block cream cheese, 1 stick butter, 3/4 bag powdered sugar, and a teaspoon or so of vanilla)

My sister sent me a link to this recipe with a high recommendation.  My family loved it and would highly recommend it as well!
