Gingerbread Bars with Cream Cheese Frosting


Gingerbread Bars with Cream Cheese Frosting | Cooking Classy

The cream cheese frosting is a wonderful complement to the spicy-sweet gingerbread. You can cheat and use a tub of storebought cream cheese frosting if you’re pressed for time.

Seeing the red and green sprinkles will automatically put everyone in a festive holiday mood. And wait until they taste these bars that are soft yet chewy which is the best. Crunchy gingerbread need not apply in my house.

INGREDIENTS:
Bars:
  • 1 package Krusteaz Gingerbread Cookie Mix
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 tablespoons molasses
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons cinnamon, or to taste
Frosting - (one 14-ounce tub store-bought whipped cream cheese frosting OR)
  • 6 ounces cream cheese, softened 
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 cups confectioners’ sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, or to taste
  • 3 to 4 tablespoons red, green, and white holiday sprinkles

DIRECTION:
For the Bars:
  1. Heat oven to 350⁰F, line an 8×8-inch pan with aluminum foil, spray with cooking spray; set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, add cook mix, egg, butter, molasses, and cinnamon and mix with a handheld electric mixer until combined.
  3. Turn dough out into prepared pan, smoothing the top with a spatula as necessary. Bake 25 to 28 minutes, or until center is set and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Allow bars to cool completely in pan on a wire rack before frosting.
Frosting:
  1. In a large bowl, add cream cheese, butter, and beat with a handheld electric mixer until smooth.
  2. Add confectioners’ sugar, vanilla, salt, and beat to incorporate and until frosting is smooth.
  3. Spread frosting evenly over bars. Top with sprinkles before slicing and serving.
  4. Bars will keep airtight at room temp for up to 5 days.
