      Prepare pumpkin batter;

      In an electric mixer on medium speed, mix together brown sugar, cinnamon, ginger, cloves, baking powder and baking soda for about 30 seconds, until evenly combined.

Add flour all at once; beat on low speed for 30 seconds, until flour is evenly blended inches.
    4. 4
      Pour half the pumpkin batter into prepared pan. Reserve other half in a small bowl, scraping mixing bowl well.

      Using the same mixing bowl, prepare cream cheese batter:
    6. 6
      Beat cream cheese, egg and extracts on medium speed for abut 2 minutes, until fluffy and smooth. Add sugar; beat on medium speed for about 1 minute. Spread cream cheese batter over pumpkin batter in pan.
    7. 7
      Pour reserved pumpkin batter over cream cheese layer. Using a rubber spatula, cut through the batter several times through the length of the pan, then through the width of the pan, to create a marbled effect.
    8. 8
      Prepare topping:
    9. 9
      Using an electric mixer on medium speed, beat butter and brown sugar for 2 minutes, until fluffy and light in color. Add flour and pecans; bet on low speed for about 1 minute. The mixture will be crumbly.

      These bars were a big Tgiving hit with family and friends! I added oatmeal to the crumble for more texture, but otherwise followed everything exactly (almond extract being the other exception). If I made this again, I'd spread the cream cheese mixture on top instead of sandwiching it -- purely for speed, and possibly aesthetics. LOVELY. Thanks.

      These were amazing. I didn't have hazelnut extract so I left it out, but they were absolutely delicious and looked pretty too. I brought them to a work potluck and everybody complimented me afterwards. The cream cheese makes a great addition to the pumpkin. I made mine a few days in advance and stored them in the fridge and they were just as good as when I baked them.

      I liked these... the only problem I had was the pumpking mixture was much thicker than the cream cheese layer (I used neufachel so maybe that was it?) and so when it was time to spread the pumpkin on top it didn't spread well. I didn't worry about marbling it since that seemed to happen anyway! I agree that the cream cheese layer seems to get lost in the spice of the pumpkin but it still tasted yummy. Yes, the praline was evident... don't know where the previous reviewer got that idea.
