Kim's Recipe Box; Pumpkin Bars

Do you have left over pumpkins you did not carve up?
Here is the recipe for you!

 Modified Banana Bar recipe  to make Pumpkin Bars …yummy!!
Pumpkin Bars
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
4 eggs
1 2/3 cups white sugar
1 cup canola oil
1 (15 ounce) can pumpkin
Cream Cheese Frosting:
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, room temperature
6 tablespoons butter, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups confectioners’ sugar
Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour a 10×15 inch baking dish. Whisk together the flour, salt, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, and pumpkin pie spice in a bowl. Beat the eggs in a mixing bowl. Whisk in the white sugar, canola oil, and pumpkin until no lumps of pumpkin remain. Stir in the flour mixture until no lumps of flour remain. Pour into the baking dish. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 25 to 30 minutes. Cool completely in the pan before cutting into squares.
While the pumpkin bars are cooling, beat the cream cheese, butter, vanilla extract, and confectioners’ sugar together in a bowl until smooth. Frost the cooled bars with the cream cheese frosting.
