Pumpkin Cheesecake Bars

Since I had leftover pumpkin from making these Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Blondies, I decided to make Pumpkin Cheesecake Bars!

I love all things cheesecake, and these bars have flavors of fall mixed right in!


Pumpkin Cheesecake Bars

  • 1 c butter, softened
  • 1 c packed brown sugar
  • 1 large egg, at room temperature
  • 1 t vanilla extract
  • 1 c pumpkin puree
  • 2 c flour
  • 1 t baking soda
  • 1 t ground cinnamon
  • 2 1/2 t pumpkin pie spice
  • 3/4 t salt
  • 8 oz cream cheese, softened 
  • 1/4 c sugar
  • 1 large egg, at room temperature
  • 1 t vanilla extract
  • 1/2 c pecans, chopped 

  • In a large bowl combine the butter and brown sugar until creamy. Beat in egg and vanilla on high speed. Mix in pumpkin. 
  • In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, and salt. 
  • Mix flour mixture into butter mixture. 
  • Spread 2/3 of the batter evenly into the prepared pan.
  • In a medium bowl beat the cream cheese, sugar, egg, and vanilla until smooth and creamy. Drop spoonfuls on top of the pumpkin batter.
  • Drop the remaining pumpkin batter on top of the spoonfuls of cream cheese, and swirl together with a knife.  
  • Sprinkle pecans.
  • Bake the bars for 35-40 minutes in a 9x13 parchment-line pan at 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Cool completely before cutting into bars.
