Pumpkin Cheese Cake Mix Bar Recipe

If you never try another bar dessert recipe again after these scrumptious ones, it won't surprise me, if your a pumpkin lover this will be the only one you'll ever make!  Taste like pumpkin pie,
 he said they're better, read on!

Crust
1 cake mix yellow, spice or white flavored
1 egg
1 teaspoon cinnamon omit if using spice cake
2 tablespoons butter, melted

Filling:
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon allspice
2 eggs
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
1 (15 ounce) can pumpkin puree
1/2 teaspoon salt

Cream cheese frosting to drizzle over the top
1 cup chopped pecans ( you have two options, either add to the top of the frosting, or sprinkle on top while baking.)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
 Line a brownie 14x 10  or jelly roll  pan with parchment paper or use a non-stick spray.
In a large mixing bowl, on low speed, combine cake mix, 1 egg, butter, and cinnamon until it form a dough, I used a flat beater with my electric mixer. Press onto bottom of prepared pan.
Using a  clean bowl and electric mixer, with the flat beater,  beat cream cheese until fluffy. Add in the sweetened condensed milk, remaining eggs, pumpkin,  spices, and salt mixing till evenly blended.
Pour over crust,  ( I sprinkle pecans just with half since not everyone likes nuts in my family).
Bake 35 to 40 minutes until the middle is set.
Cool, then chill in refrigerator. Cut into squares. Refrigerate leftovers. Drizzle frosting just before serving. 


 Sprinkle with nuts if desired.
My husbands newest favorite dessert, bar none!  He took one bite and said these are fabulous hide them!  (smile)
