Ingredients Needed for Pumpkin Cheesecake Bars

Pumpkin Cheesecake Bars take some time to assemble but other than that it’s a super easy recipe. The perfect no-bake dessert for fall is here! And here’s what you’ll need:

  • Golden Oreos and Melted Butter – these two were mixed together to make the bottom layer of this dessert.
  • Cream Cheese – the cheesecake layer begins with cream cheese! Tangy creamy goodness, which is softened to room temperature.
  • Granulated Sugar – this goes into the middle layer to help sweeten the cream cheese.
  • Vanilla – vanilla is used in the middle layer for flavor as well as in the homemade whipped cream.
  • Cinnamon and Nutmeg – used in the top layer to complement the pumpkin and in the middle layer to flavor the cheesecake.
  • Heavy Cream – used to think out the cheesecake layer and to make the whipped cream.
  • Instant Butterscotch Pudding – this is used in tandem with the pumpkin layer to firm it up and give butterscotch flavor.
  • Cold Milk – used to activate the instant pudding.
  • Pumpkin – this is just canned pumpkin puree for the top layer.
  • Powdered Sugar – used to sweeten the whipped cream.

How to Make Pumpkin Cheesecake Bars

Breaking down Pumpkin Cheesecake Bars into three different parts makes it easier to make! We have the bottom layer, the cheesecake middle layer and then the pumpkin top layer. For full details see the recipe card down below.

  1. Get out a 9×13 pan and spray it with nonstick cooking spray, set aside.
  2. Bottom Layer: crush Golden Oreos and combine with melted butter. Pour and press evenly into prepared pan, refrigerate.
  3. Middle Layer: combine softened cream cheese, sugar, vanilla and spices until smooth. Pour in heavy cream and stir. This mixture should be thick and smooth. Spread over the golden Oreo crust and refrigerate.
  4. Top Layer: stir together pudding mix, milk, pumpkin and spices until smooth. Spread over the middle cheesecake layer then refrigerate for at least an hour.
  5. Whipped Cream: whip heavy cream, powdered sugar and vanilla together until soft peaks form.
  6. Serve: cut Pumpkin Cheesecake Bars into squares, top with whipped cream and a dusting of cinnamon.

Make-Ahead Instructions

Pumpkin Cheesecake Bars are one of the best desserts to make ahead of time! They require no baking and are stored in the fridge so they last longer. Plus they are super easy to transport. Consider making these for Thanksgiving dessert, potlucks or just for fun!

Leftovers

Store leftovers in an airtight container for up to a week in the fridge! YEAH, that’s right! You can make these babies up to a week in advance and still have perfectly cut and delicious Pumpkin Cheesecake Bars ready for you. It’s truly a no muss or fuss kind of treat!

Note: I wouldn’t freeze these, simply because of the cheesecake layer. The texture gets all sorts of messed up when frozen then thawed.
