ooey gooey saturday

Weekend afternoon in October ... hmmm ... what to do?

Ah, yes. Ooey Gooey Pumpkin Bars. One of my fall faves. Quick. Easy. And best of all, tasty as all get out.

You might ask, "But are they ooey and gooey?" Yes. Yes they are.



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


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


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

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.

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 whipped cream.
