Paula Deen's Pumpkin Bars

Chances are that you already have a favorite pumpkin bar recipe.  And chances are that it's a lot like this one.  They're all pretty similar, give or take a few measurements.  But in case you are still searching for your favorite, here is the one I like the best.  Just the right amount of everything and the frosting that came straight from Heaven.  I wish Paula Deen was my next door neighbor.
4 eggs
1  2/3 cups sugar
1 cup canola oil
1 can (15 oz.) pumpkin
2 cups flour
2 tsp. baking powder
2 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda

*Beat the eggs, sugar, oil and pumpkin until light and fluffy.  Then add dry ingredients and mix on low speed until batter is smooth.  Spread on a cookie sheet (with one-inch sides) and bake for about 18-20 minutes at 350 degrees.  Cool completely before frosting.

Frosting:
8 oz. cream cheese, softened to room temp.
1/2 cup butter, softened to room temp.
1 box (16 oz.) powdered sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
dash of salt
little bit of milk if needed

*Beat cream cheese and butter until really smooth.  Slowly add powdered sugar, then vanilla and a dash of salt.  If it's too thick, add a little milk until it looks spreadable.  Spread evenly over cooled pumpkin sheet cake and then cut into bars.

Holy crap these are delicious! Just made them! The cookie pan didn't work for me (since I couldn't find it) so I just cooked it in 9 x 13 pan.
