31 Days of Pumpkin: Day 18

Yes They're All Ours:31 Days

Ready for another delicious pumpkin recipe??  This one was really amazing!

Pumpkin Cheesecake Bars

2 cups flour
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 sticks butter
1 cup chopped walnuts or pecans

16 oz. cream cheese
1 cup sugar
4 eggs
1 cup pumpkin
2 tsp vanilla
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp ginger
1/2 tsp nutmeg

Directions for crust:
1. Blend in a food processor until a ball forms.
2. Press in a 9x13 pan.
3. Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes.
4. Cool slightly .

Directions for filling:
1. Blend until smooth.
2. Pour over crust.
3. Bake at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes or until set.
4. Cool and cut into bars.

These were awesome!  They taste a lot like pumpkin pie.  The crust has a really good flavor, but in my opinion, there was too much of it.  I think I would cut the crust recipe in half next time.  There just seemed to be too much crust for the amount of filling. Other than that, these were a hit!
