"Here in this recipe these moist pumpkin bars are spiced with cinnamon and cloves and topped with a creamy browned butter frosting. So good for the soul."

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
In a large bowl stir together first seven ingredients (all the way through cloves).
Stir in pumpkin, eggs, and oil until combined.
Spread batter in a 15 x 10-inch baking pan coated with nonstick cooking spray.
Bake for 25 - 30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool in pan on a wire rack.
Spread with Browned Butter Frosting. Cut into bars. Store in the refrigerator up to 3 days. (Makes 36 bars).
FOR THE BROWN BUTTER FROSTING
In a small saucepan heat the butter over medium-low heat until melted.
Continue heating until butter turns a light golden brown, stirring occasionally. Cool slightly.
In a large bowl beat browned butter, powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla extract on medium until frosting reaches spreading consistency, adding additional milk if needed. (Makes 1 1/2 cups).
NOTE: I prefer doubling the frosting as it is really good and therefore adds more yumminess and completeness to this recipe, but it is up to you.
