Pumpkin Bars

What you need: 

1 (15-ounce) can pumpkin puree
1-2/3 cups granulated sugar
1 cup applesauce or vegetable oil (I use applesauce)
4 [ur=]egg equivalents, prepared
2 cups sifted all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking soda
pinch salt [u]Icing[/u]:
1 (8-ounce) package vegan cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup vegan margarine, softened (I use Earth Balance)
2 cups sifted confectioners' sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

What you do: 

1. Bars: In a bowl of an electric mixer, combine pumpkin puree, sugar, applesauce, and egg replacer; beat at medium speed until light and fluffy.
2. In another bowl, combine flour, baking powder, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt; thoroughly mix. Add the dry ingredients to the pumpkin mixture; mix at low speed until thoroughly combined and the batter is smooth. Spread into a greased 9" x 13" baking pan.
3. Bake in a 350 degree F oven for 30 minutes. Let cool completely before frosting
4. Icing: In the bowl of an electric mixer, combine cream cheese and margarine; beat until smooth. Add confectioners' sugar; mix at low speed until well mixed. Add vanilla extract; mix until thoroughly blended.
5. Spread icing on cooled pumpkin bars, then cut into squares and serve.

 Awesome recipe, but please don't use a whole cup of oil, it is so much better with only 1/4 to 1/2 cup oil and an extra cup of pumpkin! I also used a little less sugar than called for and frontier's pumpkin pie spice blend instead of pure cinnamon. I received many compliments on them and when I got back home I quickly finished any and all leftovers. This is one I will certainly make again ^_^
