Frosted Pumpkin Cranberry Bars

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. ground ginger
1/2 tsp. allspice
3 eggs
1 can (15 oz) pumpkin (not pumpkin pie mix)
3/4 cup butter, melted
3/4 cup dried cranberries, chopped

Brown Butter Frosting:
1/2 cup butter
4 cups confectioners' sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
4 to 6 T. milk

In a bowl, combine the first eight ingredients. In another bowl, whisk the eggs, pumpkin and butter; stir into dry ingredients until well combined. Stir in cranberries. Spread into a greased 15x10 baking pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack.

For frosting, heat the butter in a saucepan over medium heat until golden brown, about 7 minutes. Remove from heat; cool for 5 minutes. Stir in confectioners' sugar, vanilla and enough milk to achieve spreading consistency. Spread over bars. Refrigerate several hours before cutting. Store leftovers in the refrigerator. Yield: about 4 dozen
