The ultimate Fall dessert! An oversized tray of easy pumpkin bars slathered in cream cheese frosting. It's a tried and true classic, uses simply pantry staples and is oven ready in under 15 minutes.

If you're looking for a crowd pleasing, simple treat - these Old Fashioned Pumpkin Bars are a winner! Enjoy as dessert, a snack, breakfast or for your holiday parties.


This classic recipe takes only a few steps, which makes it a perfect recipe and baking activity for kids.

I use a 11x17 jelly roll pan, so really its like a Texas pumpkin sheet cake. Two 9x13 inch pans would also work well.

The Perfect Cream Cheese Frosting Ingredients

  • Cream Cheese

  • Softened Butter

  • Powdered Sugar

  • Vanilla Paste

Throw everything in a stand mixer and whip until smooth and creamy.
