This recipe for Pumpkin Spice Cheesecake Bars is adapted from our popular Cheesecake Cranberry Bars.

As always, the buttery crust also doubles as the topping.   ๐Ÿ™‚  Perfect! 

Plus, the cream cheese layer is whipped with a few ingredients and poured over the buttery crust.  Then it’s topped with the thin layer mixture of pumpkin spice puree. 

Finally, it’s all baked together in a 9 x 12 baking dish for only 25 to 30 minutes.

Easy-peasy!

NOTES and TIPS! 

  • We recommend when baking is done, allow it to cool completely and refrigerate for a few hours or overnight before cutting into bars.

  • These bars are easier to cut after they have been chilled for a few hours.  You can serve them frozen too.  They are so good, chilled, or frozen.  

  • To Freeze Bars, line an airtight container with wax or parchment paper.  Place the bars in a single layer, separate layers with a sheet of wax or parchment paper.  Bars can be frozen for up to one month. 

  • To Thaw Bars, simply arrange bars on a serving plate, and serve.  They will thaw quickly, less than 10 minutes.
