Cream Cheese Pumpkin Bars
Sarah Kieffer’s gently spiced pumpkin bars are the perfect segue-into-autumn treats. The cream cheese enhances the pumpkin filling without making everything too sweet. As Kieffer writes, “I like pumpkin pie alright, but in all honesty I will always take a slice of anything else over it, especially if cheesecake is an option. But pumpkin pie swirled into cheesecake? I will never say no.”
