Ooey Gooey Pumpkin Bars

By Divine Domesticity on November 17th , 2008

Paula Deen comes through like a champ with this delicious variation on a traditional pumpkin pie. I even converted a "doesn't like pumpkin pie" person with this baby. Be sure to serve with whipped cream and perhaps a dash of cinnamon to top it off.


Ooey Gooey Pumpkin Bars
Makes 6-8 servings

Cake:
1 (18 1/4-ounce) package yellow cake mix
1 egg
8 tablespoons butter, melted

Filling:
1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1 (15-ounce) can pumpkin
3 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
8 tablespoons butter, melted
1 (16-ounce) box powdered sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon nutmeg

fresh whipped cream, for serving

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

2. Combine the cake mix, egg, and butter and mix well with an electric mixer. Pat the mixture into the bottom of a lightly greased 13 by 9-inch baking pan.

3. To make the filling: In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese and pumpkin until smooth. Add the eggs, vanilla, and butter, and beat together. Next, add the powdered sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and mix well. Spread pumpkin mixture over cake batter and bake for 40 to 50 minutes. Make sure not to overbake as the center should be a little gooey. Serve with fresh whipped cream.

I have made Paula's ooey gooey chocolate butter cookies with great success too! Also uses a cake mix and cream cheese - this looks delicious!
