Save 1 cup of the mixture for the topping, and press the rest into the bottom of a greased pan. Bake the crust for 15 minutes.
In a small bowl, combine 8 ounces cream cheese with 2 teaspoons cinnamon, 1 teaspoon cardamom and 1/2 cup sugar. Blend until the mixture is smooth. Add 1 15-ounce can of pumpkin, 1 teaspoon vanilla and 3 lightly beaten eggs. Pour the cream cheese mixture onto the warm crust, and top it with the remaining cup of crust mix.
Allow 20 to 25 minutes for baking. Test the bars by inserting a knife in the center to see if it comes up clean. Once cooled, cut into bars, and serve within two hours of baking.Learn more about Desserts
