How to Make SALTED CARAMEL SWIRLED PUMPKIN CHEESECAKE BARS

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350.
    Line an 8x8' baking pan with aluminum foil, leaving an overhang on 2 sides, and spray with cooking spray.
    Set aside.
  2. CRUST:
    In a medium bowl, melt the butter.
    Add the graham cracker crumbs, brown sugar, cornstarch and salt (optional).
    Mix well with a fork to combine.
  3. Pour the crumbs into the prepared pan, and use a spatula to pack the mixture firmly into the pan in an even, flat layer.
    Set aside.
  4. FILLING:
    In a medium bowl, combine egg, cream cheese, sugar, pumpkin, spice, and vanilla.
    Whisk (or use a mixer) until smooth and ombined.
    HINT: The softer the cream cheese, the easier the mixture comes together.
  5. Add the flour and mix just to incorporate.
    Do not overmix.
  6. Pour the filling into the crust.
    Top with caramel sauce .. swirled in a fanciful design.
  7. Bake 40 minutes or until center is set with very little jiggle (some looseness is OK, but there should be no sloshing in the center.)
  8. Cool bars in pan for 1 hour before lifting out, using the foil overhang, and slicing.
    HINT: They are best when served chilled.
