It is that time of year that pumpkin food items appear everywhere.  I decided to try a new pumpkin bar recipe, as I usually just stick with my go to Pumpkin Gooey Cake.  These were a hit and even my anti-pumpkin husband liked them.  I really think adding cinnamon to the cream cheese icing is what makes these extra special.
