Pumpkin Sugar Cookie Bars with Cream Cheese Frosting are the perfect dessert for Thanksgiving, Halloween or any other occasion. Made of homemade pumpkin puree and topped with cream cheese frosting, certainly will become your fall favorite!
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp. vanilla
  • 2 cups pumpkin puree
  • 4 cups flour
  • 1 ½ tsp. baking powder
  • ½ tsp. baking soda
  • 2 tsp. cinnamon
  • ½ tsp. nutmeg
  • ½ tsp. ground cloves
  • ¼ tsp. Ginger
  • 8oz cream cheese (low fat), softened
  • ½ cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 tsp. vanilla
  • 3-4 cups powdered sugar
  1. Line a 9 x 13” cake pan (10 x 15”, for thinner bars) with parchment paper, spray with non-stick baking spray and set aside. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl cream together the butter and sugar (with mixer) until smooth. One at a time, add eggs, vanilla and pumpkin, mixing after each ingredient.
  3. In a separate bowl whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and ginger. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing. Dough will be heavy and sticky, like cookie dough. Spread in pan.
  4. Bake at 350 for about 35 minutes (20 mins. if you used 10x15 pan), until golden brown (a toothpick comes out clean when stuck in the middle). Let it cool.
  5. Frosting: Cream butter and cream cheese, then add vanilla and powdered sugar (gradually). Spread frosting over completely cooled bars. Sprinkle with cinnamon.
