Ingredients

For the crust:

  • 1 box yellow cake mix
  • 1 egg
  • 8 tablespoons butter melted
  • cooking spray

For the filling:

  • 8 ounces cream cheese softened
  • 1 15-ounce can pumpkin puree
  • 3 eggs
  • 8 tablespoons butter melted
  • 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
  • 12 ounces powdered sugar (equates to approximately 3 cups)

Optional garnishes: whipped cream, pumpkin pie spice

    Instructions

    • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a 9"x13" baking pan with cooking spray.
    • For the crust: Place the cake mix, egg and butter in a medium bowl. Using a mixer, beat the mixture until well combined.
    • Spoon the mixture into the prepared pan and press the dough to cover the bottom of the pan.
    • For the filling: Place the cream cheese and pumpkin into a large bowl and beat with a mixer until smooth, approximately 3-4 minutes. Add the eggs, butter and pumpkin pie spice. Beat until smooth.
    • Add the powdered sugar to the pumpkin mixture and beat until thoroughly combined.
    • Pour the pumpkin mixture on top of the crust and spread into an even layer.
    • Bake for 45 minutes or until center is just set. Cool completely, or cover and refrigerate for up to 2 days before you plan to serve it.
    • Cut into squares and serve, topped with whipped cream and pumpkin pie spice if desired.
