  1. In a bowl, combine flour and brown sugar. Cut in butter until crumbly. Stir in pecans; set aside 3/4 cup for topping. Press remaining crumb mixture into a greased 8-in. square baking pan. Bake at 350 degrees F for 15 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Cool on a wire rack.
  2. In a mixing bowl, beat cream cheese and sugar. Beat in the pumpkin, eggs, vanilla, cinnamon and allspice. Pour over crust. Sprinkle with reserved crumb mixture. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on a wire rack. Cut into bars. Store in the refrigerator.

I made this for Thanksgiving, should have done two batches! It's a hit, and I was made to promise to make it next year too. Only difference is I used light cream cheese. Thank you!

Excellent recipe! I used a pumpkin spice to replace the other spices & it turned out great! Lots of compliments & great for a buffet style meal!!!

Whoa these are quite delicious. Tastes like eating a mini-cheesecake. I read the review of the person who said she'd like more filling and less crust and made more filling. Good plan! Very decad...

My daughter loved these. She said is was like having a mini pumpkin pie. She isn't into the traditional crust so this was IT for her. Nice to know I can make it with Splenda instead of sugar and...
