Pumpkin Cheesecake Bars

Pumpkin Cheesecake Bars-  I know I’m a couple of weeks early to be doing pumpkin recipes, but I’m  willing to be bold and throw caution to the wind.  These smooth and creamy bars are great for the annual fall pot luck or church event.  All the great tastes of fall with my twist of a gingersnap crust to set off the creaminess.  Hope you enjoy them.

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
