Every party needs cupcakes, and since we made the shower Fall themed, I thought pumpkin cupcakes would be the perfect thing to make! And really – I also look for any excuse I can find to make cream cheese frosting. I could eat this stuff by the spoonful!

Well, it is time.  I tried to wait, but I just couldn’t.  It is futile to try to resist it.  And what is “it” you ask?  PUMPKIN!!!  I’m actually kind of mad at myself…I try not to bake with pumpkin until it is fall, and just because the calendar says September and school has started does not mean it is fall yet – there are still 12 more days of summer left!! And with the temperatures in NYC right now, it feels like early August!  But I just couldn’t help myself.  Pumpkin has overtaken the blogging world, and after looking at pumpkin recipe after pumpkin recipe, I just HAD to make something for myself.  After all, pumpkin is one of my absolute favorite things to bake with – I devoted a whole week to pumpkin deliciousness last year!  So, for my first recipe of the season I bring you Pumpkin Cheesecake Bars with a Golden Oreo Crust – a pretty great way to kick off pumpkin season!
