Pumpkin Cheesecake Bars

1 cup flour (I do half white, half wheat)
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup crushed pecans or almonds
5 Tbsp softened butter

1 x 8 oz cream cheese (I use Neuftzchel cheese)
2 eggs lightly beaten
1 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp AllSpice
1/2 tsp salt

Combine top four ingredients cutting in butter until it looks like a crumbly topping. Press all but 3/4 cup topping into an 8 x 8 baking dish and bake at 350 for 15 minutes. Then let cool for about 10 minutes.

Meanwhile combine remaining 7 ingredients together beating it until smooth. Pour onto pressed/cooked crust after crust cools and sprinkle remaining 3/4 cup topping on it. Bake at 350 for 30-40 minutes. Let cool completely before cutting. Enjoy!
