Okay okay, I knoooowww pumpkin spice is such a basic trend in the fall. Honestly, I’m not that into the pumpkin spice coffee and pumpkin spice flavored everything. But when it’s a pumpkin dessert with cream cheese frosting, count me in.🤤 Cream cheese is the most perfect complimentary pairing with anything pumpkin!! I would die for pumpkin bars. I was craving those, but for this recipe I decided to “spice” things up a little bit. (See what I did there?😉) Not that you can really improve pumpkin bars. They are literally perfect in every way. This is just a little different spin on it! It would be the perfect Thanksgiving dessert if you’re not a pie person like me!

Helloooo pumpkin
A plate of perfection
That texture though
