So easy to make and with the right amount of pumpkin flavor, these pumpkin cheesecake bars taste exactly like a cheesecake that crossed paths with a pumpkin pie – the best of both worlds!
These pumpkin cheesecake bars could not be easier to make:
The crust you’ll make is a 2 ingredients crust – graham cracker crumbs and melted butter. Combine, press on the bottom of a 13X9″ baking pan and set aside. No need to pre-bake the crust before pouring in the filling.
The filling starts with the classic cheesecake ingredients – cream cheese, sugar, and eggs. To that, for the pumpkin layer, you’ll need pumpkin puree and pumpkin pie spices.
Remember, to ensure the cheesecake filling is smooth and silky, it is very important to have both eggs and cream cheese at room temperature. You also have to keep in mind a light beating is all it’s needed. If you over-mix the cheesecake filling you’ll most likely end up with cracks.
