Here are a few of the questions I get asked about Pumpkin Cheesecake Bars!
How do I make pumpkin bars with cheesecake?
Pumpkin Bars with Cheesecake are super easy!! Just make pumpkin cheesecake bars! Combine layers of pumpkin cheesecake with regular cheesecake for an amazing Pumpkin Swirl Cheesecake Bars that are SO GOOD!
How do I store pumpkin cheesecake?
Because of the cream cheese in Pumpkin Cheesecake, store pumpkin cheesecake or pumpkin cheesecake bars in the refrigerator in an air tight container.
Can I freeze pumpkin cheesecake?
Yes! One of my favorite things about cheesecake is that you can make it ahead of time, put it in the freezer, and thaw 24 hours before you are wanting to serve!
How do I make my cheesecake firmer?
If you want firmer cheesecake, use 2 teaspoons of all-purpose flour to every eight-ounce brick of cream cheese. You can also leave out the heavy cream or sour cream if your cheesecake recipe calls for it.
Can you over beat cheesecake?
This is one of the hardest parts when making cheesecake. You have to mix the cream cheese enough so there are no lumps, but you also do not want to beat too much air into the mixture or the cheesecake will rise too rapidly in the oven causing it to call and crack.
How do you make cheesecake without a mixer?
A hand mixer is best when it comes to mixing cheesecake to beat all of the lumps out of the cheesecake. Avoid food processors or blenders which can prevent your cheesecake from setting.
Pumpkin Cheesecake Bars Recipe
