Homemade Pumpkin Bars or Punkin Bars, depending on where y’all are from, are moist yet light and fluffy. Topped off with rich, creamy decadent frosting, these are nothing less than exquisite! The name might be a little deceptive though, because this heavenly fall dessert could also fall into the “cake” category. I’ve tried a lot of pumpkin bar recipes over the years, and I love the flavor of this one. The most irresistible spiced pumpkin flavor, and the sweet, slightly tangy cream cheese frosting really make these bars shine.  And just look at that frosting…it’s definitely good enough to eat by the spoonful!

Homemade Pumpkin Bars

These are perfect for a crowd…or a family like mine that’s captivated with all things pumpkin! Not only do these Homemade Pumpkin Bars taste divine, but you’ll love how easy they are to prepare and frost! Just serve them on a beautiful platter.

This is a dangerous dessert to have in your home, trust me, just toss out your scale!  Now, I have a close tie between my favorite pumpkin desserts: The pumpkin Roll, Nana’s Pumpkin Cupcakes, (I love these cupcake liners) and the Sour Cream Pumpkin Bunt Cake. I guess I’ll just have to rotate the three of them. Somehow, I don’t think anyone will be complaining about that.

Add this recipe to your fall baking list, after one taste you’ll be so glad you did!
