Are you looking for a sweet treat that everyone will love this fall? These colorful Pumpkin Cheesecake Bars with a chocolate cookie crust will become a annual favorite each fall. They are perfect for Halloween, tailgating, Thanksgiving, or just to celebrate the change in the season.
These cheesecake bars are easy to make. Begin by making the chocolate cookie crust. It’s super simple. Crushed chocolate creme filled cookies (like Oreos) and butter and combined then pressed into a baking pan. Bake the crust for about 10 minutes and allow to cool a bit.
While the crust is baking begin making the filling for the pumpkin cheesecake portion of the bars. Mix together cream cheese, sugar, canned pumpkin puree, eggs, vanilla, along with cinnamon, ginger, allspice, salt, and bit of flour. Once combined pour over the baked and slightly cooled cookie crust. The secret to making sure that the cheesecake does not crack is to place the baking pan that you are using for your cheesecake bars onto a rimmed baking sheet, then fill partway with hot water. This keeps the cheesecake moist and tender and ensures gorgeous results!
Once your Pumpkin Cheesecake Bars have baked, remove them from the oven and allow to cool. When they have cooled a bit, cover and transfer to the refrigerator to completely chill and set. I promise, it will be hard to not want to sneak a taste of them, but their time is well spent chilling out in the refrigerator. Keep covered and refrigerated until ready to serve. When ready to serve, carefully remove them from the pan using the parchment or foil overhang and slice them up.
Believe me, you’ll get requests for these yummy Pumpkin Cheesecake Bars year after year! And you find yourself waiting for summer to come to an end, so you can have a good excuse to make them too.
