Pumpkin Cheesecake Bars

Recipe for Pumpkin Cheesecake Bars



1 1/4 cups graham cracker crumbs
3 tablespoons packed light-brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
pinch of salt
5 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Butter an 8-inch square baking pan and set aside.

For crust: Combine the graham cracker crumbs, brown sugar, cinnamon, and salt in a medium mixing bowl. Mix well with your hands. Add the melted butter, stir well with a fork, then rub the mixture together with your fingers until evenly mixed. Press the mixture with your fingertips to form a level layer on the bottom of the prepared pan with a lip extending about ¼ inch up the sides. Bake for 8 minutes on the center oven rack. Cool on a rack.  Reduce oven temperature to 325 degrees.
