I realize I push the limits on pumpkin spice craziness when I post two pumpkin-y recipes in a row, but these are just so delicious that I couldn't resist!
I love a good shortcut recipe for saving time. These bars use Krusteaz Pumpkin Spice Cookie Mix as the crust. Using the mix as a crust creates a sturdy base full of fall flavor that cuts into nice, neat, pretty bars. The mix also includes a mix for a spiced vanilla glaze which is the perfect finish to this treat.
The creamy bars are a perfect combination of pumpkin pie and cheesecake - they will disappear fast!
But if you want to keep them around, these bars freeze beautifully. Just cut them up into individual squares, wrap each square in plastic wrap, and then tuck them into a big Ziploc bag. Set them out on the counter for a couple of hours before you're ready to eat them. We've also had luck zapping them in the microwave at 20% power at 15 second intervals to soften them up more quickly.Print
