Mr. Pumpkin You'll Make Great Pumpkin Bars!

Summer isn't quite over and yet, here in Alaska, there is that nip to the air. A warm sunny day here and there but, soon it will be easy to think of fall and "Pumpkins!"

I love this A Muse Studio Rubber Stamps set " Too Cute to Spook." It has 9 images in all with 10 little sentiments to go with it. A fun set that is part of the A Muse A Palooza 2011 Holiday Celebration. Workshops will be held all over the US beginning August 22, 2011. Email me if you want to set up your very own private Workshop and ask about the special only to Hostess stamp set available to all A Muse A Palooza hostesses!

Betty Crocker always did make Great Pumpkin Bars

4 eggs
2 cups granulated sugar
1 cup vegetable oil
1 can (15 oz) pumpkin (not the mix)
2 cups all-purpose flour (since I mill my own flour, I'm changing this to whole wheat)
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1 cup raisins
Cream Cheese Frosting
1 package (3 oz) cream cheese, softened
1/3 cup butter or margarine, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups powdered sugar
1/2 cup chopped walnuts

350 degree Oven. Butter a 15x10 pan. Beat eggs, sugar, oil and pumpkin until smooth adding dry ingredients, raisins. Pour into pan and bake 25-30 min. Cool. When completely cool mix frosting ingredients together, beating in powdered sugar one cup at a time. Frost when smooth and sprinkle with nuts. Cut into bars.
Thanks Betty...Betty Crocker...
