Pumpkin Bar Recipe With Cream Cheese Frosting

Posted in : Dessert on by : Karen Metz Tags: , , ,

Here is another recipe I found in my collection of old cookbooks. The cookbook is from members of a Lutheran church. Their members must have a lot of German people because the title of the book is in German, “Schmecht Gut!” and several of the recipes have German names.

While going through the recipes and picking out my favorites, I found this pumpkin bar recipe with cream cheese frosting. I made it last night for my family and it makes a large pan full. They loved it! My older kids wrapped up some to take with them to work for their lunch. My younger ones enjoyed the rest of it today after their lunch.
