Pumpkin Bars

I had extra cream cheese frosting from the carrot cake I didn't want to put to waste, so I made pumpkin bars instead!!

Pumpkin Bars
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
4 eggs, beaten
1 15-ounce can pumpkin
1 cup cooking oil
1/2 recipe Cream Cheese Frosting

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a bowl stir together the flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, baking soda, salt and cloves. Stir in the eggs, pumpkin and oil until combined. Spread batter into an ungreased 15x10x1-inch baking pan.

Bake for 25-30 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool in pan on wire rack 2 hours. Spread with cream cheese frosting.  Cut into bars.

Applesauce Bars
Prepare as above, except omit pumpkin and use one 15-ounce jar applesauce.
