1/3
cup butter or margarine, softened
1

Expert Tips

Two teaspoons of pumpkin pie spice can be used instead of the ground cinnamon in this recipe.

Top each bar with a piece of Halloween candy. Or lightly press small leaf-shaped cookie cutter into center of cut bar. Use cotton swab to dust ground cinnamon inside cutter, creating leaf design.

Use a 1-pound container of Betty Crocker® Rich & Creamy cream cheese frosting.
