The Story

Pumpkin bars have a rich history in American baking, often appearing as a beloved treat during the fall season and Thanksgiving celebrations. They embody the warmth and spice that pumpkin brings to the table, combined with the sweetness of a cake and the ease of a bar dessert.

Why You Should Make

These Pumpkin Bars are the perfect balance of spice and sweetness, making them an ideal dessert for those who love the flavors of autumn. They’re also incredibly easy to make, requiring simple ingredients and offering a comforting reward for your baking efforts.

How to Serve

Serve these pumpkin bars chilled or at room temperature, with a dusting of cinnamon or nutmeg on top for an extra hint of spice. They’re perfect on their own or with a cup of hot coffee or tea, making for a delightful dessert or snack.

How to Store

Pumpkin bars can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to one week. The frosting makes them a bit delicate for freezing, but they’re so delicious, there’s rarely a need for long-term storage!


  • Make sure all your ingredients, especially the eggs and cream cheese, are at room temperature to ensure a smooth batter and frosting.
  • For an even more moist bar, consider adding a half cup of chopped nuts or raisins to the batter.
  • The bars are done when a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, but be careful not to overbake to maintain their moist texture.
