Pumpkin Cheesecake Crumb Bars

Pumpkin Cheesecake Crumb Bars
These are for those times when you can't decide whether you want pumpkin pie, cheesecake or something with crumb topping.

I hope I'm not the only one who runs into these complicated decisions...

These Pumpkin Cheesecake Crumb Bars are all those favorites in one easy to make bar. They didn't last long and I'm pretty sure it was due to Colt having at least two on the first night but they were even better after a day in the fridge.

The crumb topping adds a wonderful texture to contrast the creamy pumpkin cheesecake filling.

You can't go wrong with these bars! As long as you love pumpkin, cheesecake and crumb topping these will be your new found favorite.
