Frosted Pumpkin Spice Bars

My mom and I have made this recipe for over 15 years and love it as much as we did then. We love the simplicity and deliciousness of this recipe and it tastes like a pumpkin roll without the hassle of rolling it! (I’ll share our pumpkin roll recipe too soon.)

As a dairy princess this was Pumpkin Barsmy go to recipe to share with newspapers or news outlets as it uses BUTTER and CREAM CHEESE!

I thought this recipe was fitting as yesterday was National Pumpkin Day! ENJOY and please enjoy more than one piece!
