Pumpkin Cheesecake Bars – delicious and creamy pumpkin dessert for cheesecake lovers. You will love the flavors of fall in these bars!
And we are back to pumpkin! And cheesecake! Which means this is a perfect dessert for this time of year. Creamy cheesecake bars with pumpkin and spice. So so good!
If you love pumpkin desserts and cheesecake – you will love these sweet and creamy bars! As you may know, I am a HUGE cheesecake fan and I love using seasonal flavors to make different variations. These pumpkin bars just had to happen. And since just last week I shared a big full size cheesecake, I thought it would be fun to make this one in a bar form.
If you ever baked something with pumpkin, you know that things can get tricky. If you put too much pumpkin, the dessert can be gummy. When it comes to cheesecake, gummy is a no no for me. It’s all about the right amount of pumpkin to cream cheese ratio.
I am very particular about the texture of my cheesecakes and I didn’t want these bars to loose the creaminess and the silky texture. They are lighter in color than other pumpkin cheesecakes you may have seen but they are definitely not lacking in flavor. Let’s face it – pumpkin desserts are all about the spices. There is enough of them here to make this a true fall dessert. Perfect for celebrating and enjoying this season.
I left these cheesecake bars plain but feel free to dress each piece up with freshly whipped cream, a dash of cloves and a drizzle of caramel sauce. Or drizzle with chocolate ganache or melted chocolate. Whatever your heart desires!
