Pumpkin Bars with Cream Cheese Frosting

Pumpkin Bars are a recipe straight out of my Mom's recipe box. I have fond memories of the smell of warm spicy cake filling our little house. And even better memories of the cream cheese frosting slathered all over the top! Now these are one of my kids favorites too!
