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.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9x13 inch baking pan with non-stick spray.
Filling: In a small bowl, combine flour, salt, spices, baking powder, and baking soda.
In a larger bowl, beat 1 cup white sugar, 1/2 cup brown sugar, and butter.
Add eggs, pumpkin, and carrots and mix.
Add flour mixture and mix until well blended.
Spread into pan.
Topping: Mix together cream cheese, sugar and egg until blended.
Pour on top of pumpkin mixture and spread with a spatula until thinly covered.
Bake for 40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
Cool completely before cutting into squares.
