I was experimenting today and came up with this moist and delicious treat.

The thin cheesecake-like layer on top compliments the cake very well.

Yum! These pumpkin bars are melt in your mouth good. What makes these a bit different is not only the addition of carrots but the thin layer of cheesecake-like topping. The spices are balanced perfectly in this delicious fall dessert. This will be great after a meal as a snack with a cup of coffee or tea. The Test Kitchen
