Pumpkin Squares with Cream Cheese Frosting

Through the fall months I love to make plenty of “pumpkin” goodies.  This recipe is one of my favorites because it’s easy, fast and most importantly, delicious!  Plus, it makes a ton so you can share!  I offer a sincere thank you to my friend Carrie L, who passed this lovely recipe on to me!

Pumpkin Squares with Cream Cheese Frosting


  • 1 tsp. Salt
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 2/3 cups sugar
  • 2 tsp. Cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. Baking soda
  • 2 tsp. Baking powder
  • 4 eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup oil
  • 1 small can pumpkin

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  In large bowl, combine dry ingredients.  Add wet ingredients and stir to mix.  Spread into a greased jelly roll pan.  Bake for 20-25 minutes.  Do not over bake.  Let cool completely and frost with cream cheese frosting.

Cream Cheese Frosting:

  • 8 oz. cream cheese, softened
  • 2 ½ cups powdered sugar
  • ½ cup butter, softened

  1. These look delicious! I can’t wait to try them out. I snagged a can of pumpkin before they all ran out around here and now I know just what to make with it.

  2. I sure wish that a nice serving of this Pumpkin Square was sitting in front of me for my coffee break. It looks so delicious! Thank you so much for sharing with Full Plate Thursday. Hope you have a wonderful week and come back soon!
