These quick and easy pumpkin cheesecake bars are going to be a hit with family and friends. If someone says they don't like pumpkin, we think they'd still like this dessert. The crust has a savory butter taste. It's gooey, yet crunchy at the same time. Cream cheese and sugar make the filling sweet and creamy. The pumpkin flavor is subtle and delightful. They're divine!
