Adding some spices, pumpkin, and a creamy frosting makes these Pumpkin Spice Sugar Cookie Bars a fun fall treat.
The magazine creators know how to get me to purchase their magazines. Just put a delicious picture on the front cover with a tantalizing title, and then place this publication right where I have to check out. Really, it’s brilliant because it works on me every single time.
I don’t know why I can’t say no to these food magazine. Seriously, I have a stack of at least 10 waiting by my bed to be looked through. Yet, two more came home with me just the other night. The allure of more pumpkin goodness was too much for me to resist…
And yet, as I flipped through the pages of the ones I just bought, most of the recipes and ideas looked vaguely familiar. I’m pretty sure all of those recipes were from previous years. The recipes just got a little twist and a new picture, and voila a fun new recipe is born.
These sugar cookie bars are kind of like those magazine. I mean, by now you know that I would much rather make bar cookies than roll and cut out dough with cookie cutters. Work smarter, not harder, right?
So, you have seen a few of these different cookie bars over the past few years show up on the blog. Each time they have a fun flavor twist or new frosting idea to change them up. I’ve done funfetti, lemon, eggnog, chocolate mint, and mostly recently salted caramel chocolate sugar cookie bars.
As I looked over this list, I couldn’t believe that I had never done a pumpkin cookie bar. That had to be fixed right away. I mean this is the time of year when we have to pumpkin all the things, right?
I changed up the cookie recipe just slightly to accommodate the pumpkin, and then added all the spices to give it that fall flair. After the pumpkin spice sugar cookie bars were cool, I spread on a creamy marshmallow frosting. Go ahead and lick the spatula when you are done…you know you want to. Some fall colored sprinkles were the perfect finishing touch to these soft cookie bars!
