Every bite of these Gingerbread Bars with Maple Cream Cheese Frosting tastes like the holidays! You get all that gingerbread goodness you love in a soft bar, topped with maple cream cheese frosting and sprinkles - it's holiday dessert perfection!
Push dough into prepared baking dish and spread and press into an even layer using your hands. (It will look a little shiny and "wet" - that is how it should be!)
In the bowl of an electric stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream together butter and cream cheese until smooth.
Add in powdered sugar and maple bakery emulsion and mix until light and fluffy. Spread frosting over cooled bars. Top with sprinkles.
Cut into squares. (I like to refrigerate for 10 minutes or so, to let the frosting firm up a bit, before cutting.) Store, covered, in refrigerator.
