Micah's Secret Pumpkin Bar Recipe

Well, it's not technically a secret because it originally came from the Better Homes and Gardens New Cook Book, but to an eight year old is has the power to hold something above his older siblings to be the only kid in the family who knows how to make our favorite pumpkin bars. It's our special secret that only he is allowed to mix for whatever reason that it happened to be him who initially mixed up a batch. Yet, Micah never fails to remind us that Trent was better at making pumpkin bars than he is, so when he gets to Heaven Trent will still be the best pumpkin bar maker, other than God of course. How God blessed us with this sweet little boy from half way around the world! But I digress, the recipe, with no further ado (tweaked just a little to use our own homegrown pureed pumpkin):
4 beaten eggs
1 cup cooking oil
2 cups pumpkin
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 tsp. ground cinnamon
2 cups all purpose flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
Cream cheese frosting
Mix all ingredients as listed, spread into an ungreased, deep cookie sheet (also works well for cupcakes). Bake in a 350 degree oven for 25-30 minutes. Let cool and frost with cream cheese frosting. Yummy!

Those do sound really good :) :) I think pumpkin makes everything better...and you know what? I've even used pumpkin puree as a natural thickener when I'm making chili. It works and tastes better than corn starch or flour ;) :) Love and hugs from the ocean shores of California, Heather :)
