Pumpkin Bars with Cinnamon Browned Butter Frosting

The best Pumpkin bars ya every had? Yep, right here! The cinnamon browned butter cream cheese frosting takes the cake! If you never ate frosting by the spoonful yet, you will today! You're not seeking for a hint of pumpkin flavor, their bursting with it! Plus their moist and soft. And did I mention the frosting? Oh, I did?'s...let's just say... OH MY! These babies are good!


1 15 oz can pumpkin puree
2 cup flour
1 ½ cup sugar
¾ cup oil
4 eggs
2 tsp baking soda
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp baking powder
½ tsp ginger
½ tsp nutmeg
¼ tsp allspice
¼ tsp cloves

Cinnamon Browned Butter Frosting
½ cup butter
1 8oz pkg cream cheese
3 – 4 cups powdered sugar 
1 tsp cinnamon

Heat oven 350. In a small bowl combine flour, soda, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, allspice and cloves. In a another bowl, whisk eggs, oil, sugar and pumpkin and mix well. Add dry ingredients to the pumpkin mixture and mix until well combined. Pour into a greased 9x13 pan. Bake about 30 minutes.

Now for the amazing frosting! In a saucepan melt butter over medium heat. Continue to let butter cook until golden brown and a light nutty aroma. Allow to cool. Once it’s about room temp, beat with cream cheese, cinnamon and powdered sugar and spread over cooled bars. Refrigerate for easier cutting.
