Pumpkin Raisin Bars

My mom has had this recipe since 1998. It is from a 
Sun-maid raisin cook book. I added extra walnuts, and raisins. I also added extra cream cheese to the frosting. I love this particular recipe over other Pumpkin Raisin Bars since it has the walnuts and raisins in it. I hope you guys enjoy this!
