Woo-hoooo! This is my 100th recipe posted! :o)
These pumpkin cream cheese bars are just right for this Fall season. They are moist, lightly spiced, and have just the right amount of sweetness. No need for frosting ... just cool, cut and serve!

Semi-sweet chocolate chips are optional.

If you don't have pumpkin pie spice, mix together 1 tsp. ground cinnamon, 1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg and 1/4 tsp. ground ginger...voilá!
