Expert Tips

  • In a hurry? Pick up a container of Betty Crocker® cream cheese ready-to-spread frosting rather than preparing the spice frosting. It's delicious and so quick!
  • Turn these fall favorites into Christmas bars! Sprinkle with red and green decorator sugar, and add 1/2 cup chopped dried cranberries to the recipe.
