Expert Tips

  • Tip 1
    Simplify:In a hurry? Pick up a container of Betty Crocker* Whipped Cream Cheese Frosting rather than preparing the spice frosting. It's delicious and so quick!
  • Tip 2
    Variation: Turn these fall favourites into Christmas bars! Sprinkle with red and green decorator sugar, and add 1/2 cup chopped dried cranberries to the recipe.
