  • Cheesecake:
  • 8 oz. cream cheese
  • 1 cup sour cream at room temperature
  • 2 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 2 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 sticks unsalted butter melted
  • 2 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 large egg

  • Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
  • Line a 9X13 pan with a sheet of parchment paper.

  • In a small bowl, mix together the flour, pumpkin spice and salt. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, mix together the butter, brown sugar, egg, vanilla and pumpkin.
  • Set aside ¾ cup of the pumpkin mix and pour the rest on top of the prepared crust.
  • Prepare the Cheesecake:
  • In a large bowl, mix together the cream cheese, sour cream, flour, sugar, vanilla and salt.
  • Pour on top of the pumpkin mixture in your pan.
  • Spoon the rest of your pumpkin mixture on top of the cheesecake.
  • Using a knife or toothpick, lightly swirl around the top, creating a pretty swirl of the cheesecake and pumpkin.
  • Bake for about 45 to 50 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  • Let cool completely in the pan, then cut into bars.
  • Serve & enjoy
