Delicious Frosted Gooey Butter Pumpkin Bars - a simple but great fall treat! { lilluna.com } Recipe includes a pumpkin cake box mix, cream cheese, powdered sugar and topped with cream cheese frosting and cinnamon and sugar!

Are you guys sick of the pumpkin recipes yet?

I sure hope you aren’t. Today’s recipe is one I’ve been meaning to try for years (yes – years!!) There is a Gooey Butter Bar recipe that I make all the time made with cake mix. When I discovered that Pillsbury made a Pumpkin Cake Mix, I need I needed to try a pumpkin version of this recipe. I mean, how could I not?! This year, I was finally able to do it and the result was amazing!!! What I loved most was that it definitely had a PUMPKIN taste to it, but wasn’t overwhelmingly pumpkin tasting if that makes sense. And what’s even better is you can make it more pumpkin-y by adding a little bit of Pumpkin Pie Spice. 😉

I ended up using a can of Cream Cheese frosting to top it off, but these bars are good on their own too. You could also use my recipe for Homemade Cinnamon Cream Cheese frosting instead too. Both good, right?!

These Gooey Butter Pumpkin Bars are simple to make and are definitely a great treat to try out this fall. 🙂

Here’s the recipe:

    Let me know how you like these. They’re not too pumpkin-y but I’d add more pumpkin pie spice if you really love pumpkin. 😉
