Pumpkin Cheesecake Bars

These.Bars.

My BFF made these for an Origami Owl Jewelry Bar and I honestly couldn’t stop eating them. So very addictive.

So I obviously had to come home and make them after making a couple of tweeks. I made them for a Halloween party, and my husband conveniently forgot to put them in the car.
Uh-huh, so you know what that means? I have had a 9 x 13 pan of these at my house for a week. I have probably eaten 12 of them. I DO NOT exaggerate.

The moral of this story is…if you make them, be sure not to keep them in your house.
