Pumpkin Cheesecake Bars…another recipe from Brandi….don’t you just love her?
I want her to live with me.
Cook for me.
I’m jealous of her hubby.
She sent me this picture from her phone AFTER her family ate some for desert, hee hee…..so this recipe will produce more than this picture!
1/3 c. packed brown sugar
1/2c chopped pecans
8oz cream cheese (block), softened
3/4c. Canned Pumpkin
1 1/2tsp cinnamon
5 tbs. cold butter
Combine flour, brown sugar. Cut in butter until mixture is crumbly and add pecans. Set aside 1/2c of the crumble. Press remaining mixture into greased 8″ square baking dish and bake @ 350 for 15-20 minutes. Cool completely.
Once crust is cooled beat cream cheese and sugar. Add pumpkin, eggs, vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg and mix. Pour over crust and top with the crumble. Bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown. Cool at room temperature and then put it in the fridge to chill.
Before serving slice into rectangular bars. Serve with whipped cream!
