I needed a last minute treat to serve at the open house so I googled "pumpkin cheesecake cake mix". I wanted something easy. I tweaked it a bit (don't I always?!). It certainly was easy! It was yummy, too! Enjoy!
Pumpkin Cheesecake Bars
1 package cake mix (yellow or white)
1 T. butter (melted)
2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice (see below)
Mix the ingredients and press into the bottom of a greased 9x13 cake pan.
1 8 oz. package cream cheese (softened)
1 15 oz. can pumpkin
2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
1/2 tsp. salt
1 14 oz. can sweetened condensed milk (try one of my two DIY recipes HERE)
Beat the cream cheese until fluffy. Mix in pumpkin, eggs, pie spice, salt and sweetened condensed milk. Pour over crust and bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 30-35 minutes. Chill; cut into bars. Store covered in the refrigerator.
Pumpkin Pie Spice
1 1/2 T. ground cinnamon
1 tsp. ground nutmeg
1 tsp. ground ginger
1/2 tsp. ground cloves
Mix together and store in a container. (Makes 7 tsp.)
