Gingerbread Cookie Bars with Cream Cheese Frosting

I never knew I was a Gingerbread fan.  The other day I was at the Dollar Store and there was a Crumbl Cookies next door, so I figured I'd run in and surprise the family with some cookies.  They had a Gingerbread Cookie and I got it.  I figured it would be the least favorite out of all the flavors I picked up, BUT it ended up being THE BEST.  It was seriously SO DANG good and I couldn't get it out of my head all week, so I set out to make a delicious Gingerbread Cookie at home.  

I decided to go with cookie bars instead of cookies, because sometimes it's just so much easier to press all the dough into one pan, rather than make several batches of individually scooped cookies.  

These bars turned out SO SO SO GOOD.  They are soft and chewy and perfectly spiced.  I love the ginger and ground clove aftertaste they leave in your mouth and you can't forget the creamy frosting on top.  It's smooth and rich and the perfect topping for these cookie bars.  

These were a huge hit with my family and will definitely be made each holiday season in my house.  I mean just look at that cookie to frosting ratio . . . how could they not be a hit! 

I'm already gearing up to make another batch tonight.
