  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. Spray 15x10x1-inch pan with cooking spray.
  • 2
    In large bowl, beat eggs, granulated sugar, oil and pumpkin with whisk until smooth. Stir in flour blend, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, ginger and cloves. Spread in pan.
  • 3
    Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean and bars spring back when touched lightly in center. Cool completely, about 2 hours.
  • 4
    In medium bowl, beat cream cheese, butter and vanilla with electric mixer on low speed until smooth. Gradually beat in powdered sugar, 1 cup at a time, on low speed until smooth and spreadable. If necessary, beat in milk 1/2 teaspoon at a time until desired consistency. Spread frosting over bars; refrigerate 30 minutes before cutting for frosting to set. Cut into 8 rows by 6 rows. Store loosely covered in refrigerator.

Expert Tips

  • Plain canned pumpkin is not sweetened and doesn't have flavoring added; pumpkin pie mix contains sugar and spices.
  • Always read labels to make sure each recipe ingredient is gluten free. Products and ingredient sources can change.
