Ingredients

  • 2 cups (400g) brown sugar
  • ½ cup (113g) unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 ½ teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups (248g) all purpose flour

For the Frosting

  • 2 tablespoons (28g) unsalted butter, softened
  • 4 ounces (112g) cream cheese softened
  • 2 cups (226g) powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1-2 teaspoons heavy whipping cream or milk

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a 9x13” pan with foil and spray with cooking spray.
  • Cream brown sugar and ½ cup butter in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a paddle attachment. Add eggs and 1 tablespoon vanilla and beat until combined. Add cinnamon, baking powder, salt, and flour and mix.
  • Press into prepared pan (dough is sticky, spray your hands with cooking spray to avoid it sticking to your hands).
  • Bake for about 18-22 minutes. (Be careful not to overcook - the center will still be jiggly when you take these out of the oven and they will finish cooking and firming up as they cool.) Cool completely before frosting.
  • To make frosting: cream butter and cream cheese with a hand mixer until smooth. Slowly mix in the the powdered sugar and 1 teaspoon vanilla. Add 1 teaspoon heavy whipping cream and mix until smooth, adding more as needed for desired consistency. Frost the cooled bars, then cut into squares.
  • Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days or freeze in a single layer for up to 1 month.
