I hope no one is getting tired of pumpkin recipes yet, because here’s a recipe for some very delicious Marbled Pumpkin Cream Cheese Bars.
These melt-in-your-mouth bars are so very moist, and the combination of pumpkin and cream cheese flavors are just wonderful.
Marbled Pumpkin Cream Cheese Bars
1 cup canned solid-pack pumpkin
1 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 ounces cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup granulated sugar
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Grease and flour a 9×13-inch baking pan.
For batter: combine pumpkin, sugar, egg, and oil in a large bowl; mix well. Stir in flour, pumpkin pie spice, baking powder, baking soda, and salt until well combined. Pour into prepared pan.
For filling: mix cream cheese, sugar and egg together in a medium bowl until well blended. Drizzle cream cheese mixture over batter. Cut through batter with a knife several times to create marble effect.
Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Cool; cut into squares.
