Pumpkin Pumpkin Bars

I made pumpkin bars (Note: there was a mistake in the nutritional info that has since been updated) the other day. Hubby and I absolutely loved them so I thought I’d whip up a batch for the coworkers to enjoy.

I thought it would be fun to use a pumpkin cookie cutter for the bars. I added orange food coloring to the frosting and piped it through a ziploc bag with a whole cut out of one of the corners. Everyone loved them!
For this batch, since I wasn’t going to be eating any of them, I used 1/3 less fat cream cheese for the frosting. It definitely lowers the calories and fat of the frosting some.

    Hard to go wrong with cream cheese in the middle of a muffin! These look fantastic!

    Yes to pumpkin any time of the year! Love the cream cheese filling inside. I bet these were a hit!

    My previous employer used to host a chili cook-off over lunch for United Way. It was the best lunch day of the year. And of course there were desserts!
