Pumpkin Bars

My daughter and grandson came over today and moved most of my 400 and some cookbooks and sorted out them out for me. I made these pumpkin bars as a bribe.
It makes such a large recipe that she rarely makes them as do I.  They are the best pumpkin bars I make, and the recipe I go to, but you really need to share them or have a large crowd over.
They are from a 1980 paperback from Pillsbury, Harvest Time Cook Book.
Do try them and be sure that your cream cheese is at room temp. so it will beat in well for the frosting.
