Pumpkin bars. The perfect fall treat. Moist, spiced cake with a thin layer of cream cheese frosting. This is my Mom’s recipe and an absolute favorite of ours.

Mom’s Perfect Pumpkin Bars

2 cups sugar

2 cups flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

1 teaspoon baking soda

2 teaspoons cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon (or more 😉 ) pumpkin pie spice

1 cup oil

2 cups canned pumpkin

4 eggs

Mix all ingredients together. Pour into a greased 12×9 or 13×9 pan or cookie sheet. Bake at 350 for 20 to 25 minutes.

Cream Cheese Frosting

3 oz. softened cream cheese

3/4 softened stick of butter

1 3/4 cup powdered sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 Tablespoon milk

For frosting, cream the cheese, butter and sugar. Add milk and vanilla and beat well. Spread frosting on cooled bars.

Corn Casserole

20130825-215901.jpg

This recipe is absolutely one of my favorites! It’s the kind of thing I get cravings for. And when I want it, I want it NOW! It’s something my aunt-who’s-really-my-second-cousin (we all have those, admit it. 😛 ) makes when we go up for a visit to Nebraska. It’s just Aunt Rhonda’s thing. I can’t tell you how many times I begged her to make it. I was thrilled when we managed to get the recipe. It’s so good that everybody should have it!

Aunt Rhonda’s Corn Casserole

1 can whole kernel corn (not drained)
1 can cream corn
1/2 cup butter (melted)
1 cup Velveeta (health food nuts, don’t ruin it by using “healthy” cheese!)
1 cup uncooked macaroni (don’t use a different type of noodle, it doesn’t always cook right.)
1 tsp. onion flakes
Salt and pepper to taste

Combine all ingredients. Bake uncovered at 325 degrees for one hour, stirring once after baking 30 minutes.
