Cheesecake are one of my favourite desserts! So of course I had to make some cheesecakes for fall themed baking! What I love about cheesecake bars is they’re easier to make than a traditional large round cheesecake. There is no need for a water bath and no risk of developing large cracks.

How to Make These Cheesecake Bars

Preheat oven to 325 F and line a square 8×8 baking pan with parchment paper. Make sure the paper slightly overhangs on the sides. This will allow you to easily remove the cheesecake from the pan.

Making The Crust

In a medium sized bowl mix the graham cracker crumbs, brown sugar, and melted butter together until well combined. The mixture will have the texture of wet sand.

Add the crumb mixture into your lined baking pan and using your hands or bottom of a measuring cup press and smooth the crumbs together evenly over the bottom of the pan. Bake crust in the oven for 9 minutes. After remove and let cool to room temperature.

MAKING THE CHEESECAKE BATTER

Using your stand mixer or hand held mixing beat cream cheese in a large bowl until smooth, this takes about 3 minutes. Add in the sugar, salt, heavy cream, and vanilla extract. Mix on medium speed until well combined. Scraping down the bowl as needed. Add in the two eggs and mix just till combined on a low speed.

Scoop out 1 cup worth of the vanilla cheesecake batter and set aside.

To the large bowl add in the pumpkin puree and pumpkin spice and mix on a low speed until combined.

Assembling The Cheesecake Bars

Add half the pumpkin cheesecake batter over top of the graham cracker curst. Spreading it evenly. Spoon dollops of the vanilla cheesecake on top. Then add on the remaining pumpkin cheesecake on top. Lastly, add more spoonfuls of the vanilla cheesecake on top.

Next, take a butter knife and gently trace lines horizontally and then vertically. This will give your cheesecake the swirled marble effect.

Bake cheesecake for 40-45 minutes or until edges are stiff and the middle is just a little jiggly. Remove pan from the oven and let fully cool to room temperature.

Once at room temperature, move the cheesecake into the fridge. Let chill in the fridge for at least 4 hours or over night.

Serving The Cheesecake Bars

To serve, remove the chilled cheesecake from the fridge. Gently lift it from the pan using the overhanging parchment. Use a sharp knife to slice, be sure to wipe down the knife after each cut to get a clean cut.

STORING THE CHEESECAKE

Cheesecake should be stored in the fridge. The cheesecake will stay good up to three days after baking.

Bake them on your own or bake them with your kids, either way I’m sure you’ll love with these Pumpkin Swirl Cheesecake Bars!
