Pumpkin Cheesecake Bars

The open house was a huge success!  Thanks so much to all of you who made it out to our old homestead!  I enjoyed visiting with everyone!  If you couldn't make it out feel free to visit my etsy shop HERE and do some Christmas shopping there.  If you are local and can pick up your order email it to me and I'll take care of you.

 One of the newest lovelies added to the shop.  Find it HERE.

I needed a last minute treat to serve at the open house so I googled "pumpkin cheesecake cake mix".  I wanted something easy. I tweaked it a bit (don't I always?!). It certainly was easy!  It was yummy, too!  Enjoy!

Pumpkin Cheesecake Bars

1 package cake mix (yellow or white)
1 egg
1 T. butter (melted)
2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice (see below)

Mix the ingredients and press into the bottom of a greased 9x13 cake pan.

1 8 oz. package cream cheese (softened)
1 15 oz. can pumpkin
2 eggs
2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
1/2 tsp. salt
1 14 oz. can sweetened condensed milk (try one of my two DIY recipes HERE)

Beat the cream cheese until fluffy.  Mix in pumpkin, eggs, pie spice, salt and sweetened condensed milk.  Pour over crust and bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 30-35 minutes.  Chill; cut into bars.  Store covered in the refrigerator.


Pumpkin Pie Spice
1 1/2 T. ground cinnamon
1 tsp. ground nutmeg
1 tsp. ground ginger
1/2 tsp. ground cloves

Mix together and store in a container.  (Makes 7 tsp.)
