2    cups   all-purpose flour
1 1/2   cups   sugar
2    teaspoons   baking powder
2    teaspoons   ground cinnamon
1    teaspoon   baking soda
1/2   teaspoon   salt
1/4   teaspoon   ground cloves
4      eggs, lightly beaten
1    15 ounce can  pumpkin
1    cup   vegetable oil
1 1/2   cups   chopped pecans, toasted
1/3   cup   caramel-flavor ice cream topping
1    Recipe  Browned Butter Frosting, Cream Cheese Frosting, or canned cream cheese frosting

Browned Butter Frosting

1/3   cup   butter
3    cups   powdered sugar
2    tablespoons   milk
1    teaspoon   vanilla

Cream Cheese Frosting

2    3 ounce packages  cream cheese, softened
1/3   cup   butter, softened
1 1/2   teaspoons   vanilla
4 1/2 - 5    cups   powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a large bowl stir together flour, sugar, baking powder, 2 teaspoons cinnamon, baking soda, salt, and cloves. Stir in eggs, pumpkin, and oil until combined. Pour batter into an ungreased 15x10x1-inch baking pan, spreading evenly.
In a small bowl stir together the pecans and caramel topping. Spoon nut mixture over batter in pan.
Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool in pan on a wire rack.
Use only half of the Browned Butter Frosting recipe (chill or freeze the remaining frosting and use it to frost cupcakes). Stir enough milk into the frosting to make it a drizzling consistency. Drizzle over cooled bars.
Browned Butter Frosting
In a small saucepan heat butter over low heat until melted. Continue heating until butter turns a light golden brown. Remove from heat. In a large bowl combine powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla. Add browned butter. Beat on medium speed until spreading consistency, adding additional milk if necessary.
Cream Cheese Frosting
In a large bowl combine cream cheese, butter, and vanilla. Beat with an electric mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy. Gradually beat in powdered sugar to make a frosting of spreading consistency.


To store, place bars in a single layer in an airtight container; cover. Store in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
