Cream Cheese Frosting


Check the readiness of the bars by poking them with a toothpick. If the toothpick comes out clean with a few crumbs, they’re ready! 

Wait to frost the pumpkin bars until they’re room temperature.

You can use store-bought cream cheese frosting if preferred.

Avoid overmixing the frosting for best results.
