My husband and oldest son LOVE Cheesecake…and I love Pumpkin. So we decided to make some Pumpkin Oreo Cheesecake Bars. They are super easy to make and taste pretty darn good. They are the perfect Sunday afternoon treat. I don’t love a thick cheesecake, so I decided to make these in a 9 x 13 pan, instead of an 8 x 8 pan and am really glad that I did. But, if you like a thicker cheesecake…go ahead and put these in a smaller pan so that you have a thicker bar and a thicker Oreo crust!
Pumpkin Oreo Cheesecake Bars
*printable recipe Pumpkin Oreo Cheesecake Bars
2 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup pumpkin puree
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 pinch ground cloves
1 pinch ground nutmeg
1/2 cup frozen whipped topping, thawed
24 Oreos, crushed finely
1 TBSP butter, melted
Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
- Make the Oreo crust by mixing crushed Oreo with the melted butter. Press with clean hands into the bottom of a lightly greased 9 x 13 pan (for thin Cheesecake) or an 8 x 8 pan (for a thick cheesecake) and bake for 8 minutes in a 325 degree oven. Pull out of the oven and let it cool completely before adding the cheesecake filling
In a large bowl, combine cream cheese, sugar and vanilla. Beat until smooth. Blend in eggs one at a time.
Add pumpkin, cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg and stir gently until well blended. Carefully spread over the batter in the crust.
- Bake in preheated oven for 35 to 40 minutes, or until center is almost set. Allow to cool, then refrigerate for 3 hours or overnight. Cover with whipped topping before serving. Add crushed Oreos for a fun garnish.
This is sure to be a crowd pleaser that you can serve at any family and friend get together. If you want to take it up a notch you could add some chocolate syrup to drizzle across the top of the Pumpkin Oreo Cheesecake Bars and toss on some chopped Pecans!
It was a big hit at our house and has now made it’s way into our regular recipe rotation. It is fun to have certain family recipes that we pull out with the different seasons.
