Pumpkin bars are easy to make and since they are made in a jelly roll pan, they make enough for a crowd. They are so moist and delicious with just the right amount of spice that people will rave about them for days.  It is just a bonus that your house will be filled with aroma of fall; the smell of pumpkin and cinnamon and cloves.  The cream cheese frosting puts them over the top.  Treat your family today.  Warning:  You will need a lot of self control not to eat half of the pan yourself.
