Pumpkin Cheesecake Bars

When I think about it, some of my favorite pumpkin treats involve cream cheese. I love the combination of sweet and spiced pumpkin mixed with tangy and smooth cream cheese. These Pumpkin Cheesecake Bars are just that, plus two layers of crunch and flavor to really bring them together.

Let me explain. These bars start with a vanilla cookie crust, then get a layer of plain cheesecake, then a layer of pumpkin cheesecake, and to top this off, they are finished with a seasonally spiced crumble topping. Are you drooling yet? If not, you should be.

How to Make Pumpkin Cheesecake Bars

Spray a 9×13 baking pan with baking spray. Set aside.

Begin by making the crust. In a bowl, mix together the crushed vanilla wafers and butter. Spread and press this mixture evenly into your prepared pan. Refrigerate for about 15 minutes. For your convenience, I’ve shared the full recipe with detailed ingredient amounts in a printable recipe card below.

In a large bowl, cream together the cream cheese and sugar. Then add in the eggs and vanilla and beat until smooth. Spread half of this mixture evenly onto the chilled crust. Freeze for 20 minutes until slightly firm.

Preheat your oven to 325 degrees F.

To the leftover cream cheese mixture, add in the pumpkin puree, cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger. Beat until smooth. Spread this carefully over the white cheesecake layer. Bake for 30 minutes.

In the meantime, prepare the crumble topping. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and salt. Add in the butter and use a fork or pastry blender to combine.

After 30 minutes of baking, sprinkle the crumb mixture evenly on top of the cheesecake. Return the cheesecake to the oven for another 30 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean.

Completely cool the bars before slicing and serving. Bars should be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

I can’t express enough how good these are. I kept them in my fridge for way too long and used every excuse I could muster up to open that fridge door and enjoy them. Oh, it’s breakfast; I should probably eat one. I just had a salty snack; I need something sweet to balance it. Time for an after-dinner dessert; I’ll just grab a pumpkin cheesecake bar. Ha! It was a real problem, friends.

So, if you’re looking for a new and delicious pumpkin spice dessert, I recommend you give these Pumpkin Cheesecake Bars a go!
