Thanksgiving Dessert of the Day: Paula's Pumpkin Bars

By: Kelsey Vala

Paula's Pumpkin Bars are the perfect Thanksgiving treat to take to a friend’s house or an office party. They’re quick and easy ( see how Paula makes them), yet full of that pumpkin-y goodness that’s so essential during the fall season. The best part about these pumpkin bars is the rich, buttery frosting (using a whole stick of butter and a package of cream cheese!). Do not skimp on the frosting. Slather it on to make this pumpkin dessert completely irresistible.
