These cheesecake bars make use of premade refrigerated cookie dough for the base. I usually top with a dollop of whipped cream.


Serves: 18 

  • 300g refrigerated sugar cookie dough
  • 300g cinnamon (or chocolate) chips
  • 680g cream cheese, softened
  • 3/4 cup (150g) sugar
  • 1 teaspoon mixed spice
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 3 eggs

Preparation:15min  ›  Cook:45min  ›  Extra time:4hours chilling  ›  Ready in:5hours 

  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C.
  2. Pat the cookie dough into a 20x30cm baking dish to cover the bottom and sprinkle evenly with the cinnamon chips. Bake in the preheated oven until the crust is lightly browned, 12 to 14 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, beat together the cream cheese, sugar, spice and vanilla until smooth with an electric mixer. Beat in the pumpkin until combined, then beat in the eggs until the mixture is smooth. Pour into the baking dish and return to the oven. Continue baking until the centre of the mixture has set, 30 to 35 minutes.
  4. Cool the baking dish on a wire rack to room temperature, then refrigerate until cold, about 4 hours. Cut into 18 squares to serve.
