Pumpkin Cheesecake Bars


  • Total Time: 1 hr + (includes cooling time)
  • Yield: 9 slices 1x

Description

These pumpkin cheesecake bars are just in time for fall or Thanksgiving! Super creamy and smooth with a sweet, cinnamon-spiced, and cheese taste that everyone will love!


Ingredients

Scale

For the Crust:

  • 1 ½ Cups Almond flour
  • ¼ Cup Sugar
  • ¼ Cup Butter, melted
  • ½ teaspoon Cinnamon

For the Filling:

  • 16 oz, Cream cheese, at room temperature
  • ⅓ Cup Sugar
  • ¾ Cup Pumpkin puree, at room temperature
  • 2 Eggs, room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon Pumpkin pie spice
  • ½ teaspoon Cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla extract

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Prepare an 8’’ baking tray with parchment paper.

  2. Mix the ingredients for the crust until a crumbly consistency. Place it into the prepared baking tray, press it down with your fingers evenly.

  3. Bake it for 8-10 minutes or until lightly golden. Set aside.

  4. Combine the cream cheese and sugar using an electric hand mixer until smooth. Then add pumpkin puree, ground cinnamon, and pumpkin spice. Mix to combine.

  5. Add the eggs and gently use a spatula or a hand mixer to combine. Don’t over-whisk, or you’ll be adding undesired air to the batter will make the cheesecake end up with cracks when baked.

  6. Pour the batter on top of the crust, shake the cheesecake onto the counter to release any bubble it could have inside.

  7. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until it is almost set in the middle. A slightly jiggly cheesecake will make a softer and airy texture at the end. The cheesecake will be set entirely once chilled. Turn off the oven and leave it there with the door closed for 10 minutes. Then open the door a few inches and leave it there until the oven is at room temperature. Leave the cheesecake to cool before refrigerating it.

  8. Place the cheesecake in the fridge for at least an hour to chill.

  9. To serve, divide it into 9 pieces or bars and garnish with some fresh whipped cream on top.

Notes

The ingredients must be at room temperature before beginning to avoid lumps in the batter. 

Once cooked and cooled, the cheesecake bars can be kept in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
