These Pumpkin Cheesecake Bars are practically no-fail and SO EASY. The crust and filling comes together quickly, resulting in a gooey, perfect cheesecake bar that tastes just like pumpkin pie!
Ingredients
  • FOR THE CRUST:
  • One (16 oz) pkg pound cake mix
  • 2 Tbsp butter, melted
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • FOR THE FILLING:
  • One (8 oz) pkg cream cheese, at room temperature
  • One (14 oz) can sweetened condensed milk
  • One (15 oz) can pumpkin puree (NOT pumpkin pie mix)
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • Whipped cream for garnish, optional but recommended
Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Liberally grease a 13x9" rectangular baking pan with cooking spray; set aside briefly.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the crust ingredients until moist crumbs form. Press the crust mixture evenly on the bottom of the pan. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese with an electric mixer until fluffy, about 1 minutes. Add in the condensed milk, pumpkin puree, eggs, and spice and beat slowly until smooth and incorporated. Pour the filling mixture over the crust and bake for 30-35 minutes or until the center is set and not jiggly.
  4. Cool the bars in the pan until room temperature, then refrigerate for at least 2 hours to firm up before cutting into bars. Garnish with whipped cream before serving.
