I have a question about the recipe "Pumpkin cheesecake with gingersnap pecan crust" from Oh Sweet Day!. Can I use this crust recipe for 8x8 pan to make bars instead of a round cheesecake?

Hi Megan No,
The amount of crust in that recipe should work just fine in a square pan that size. My only concern would be that this crust can be crumbly, which is why it works well in a springform pan. You may have to sacrifice the first bar to get the rest of the bars out easily. Consider it a treat for you to taste.
Hope this helps, and best of luck!
Eek! Sorry about your name, Megan Jo! Autocorrect has a wicked sense of humor at times.
Yes totally! Make sure you chill it long enough (overnight) before cutting it into squares. :)
