Pumpkin Cinnamon-Nut Sheet Bars With Creamy Cream Cheese Icing

“These bars are AWESOME!! the original recipe called for 2 cups sugar, I decreased the sugar amount to 1-1/2 cups which was plenty sweet. To reduce the fat, use half oil and half applesauce. If you like more spice then increase the nutmeg and cloves. These make a ton of bars!”
