Pumpkin Cheesecake Bars Recipe

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 5 tablespoons cold butter or margarine
  • 1 cup finely chopped pecans
  • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup cooked or canned pumpkin
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground allspice

In a bowl, combine flour and brown sugar. Cut in butter until crumbly. Stir in pecans; set aside 3/4 cup for topping. Press remaining crumb mixture into a greased 8-in. square baking pan. Bake at 350 degrees F for 15 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Cool on a wire rack. In a mixing bowl, beat cream cheese and sugar. Beat in the pumpkin, eggs, vanilla, cinnamon and allspice. Pour over crust. Sprinkle with reserved crumb mixture. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on a wire rack. Cut into bars. Store in the refrigerator.
