Coleen’s Recipes: PUMPKIN PIE CHEESECAKE BARS by Gordon Ramsay

Coleen's Recipes: PUMPKIN PIE CHEESECAKE BARS


This recipe is not only delicious, but quick and easy and it freezes well. I like to make a pan of these, cut them into squares…wrap them individually and freeze them for a quick dessert.


PUMPKIN PIE CHEESECAKE BARS

CRUST
1 1/2 cups finely ground graham cracker crumbs

1/4 cup sugar

4 tablespoons melted butter

Mix crust ingredients and evenly spread over a parchment lined 8″ x 8″ pan and press down…..set aside.

NOTE: Line an 8″ x 8″ baking pan with parchment so that you can lift the finished bars out of the pan AFTER they chill.

FILLING
(2) 8 ounce cream cheese (room temperature)
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 large eggs
1/2 cup pumpkin pie puree (puree…without spices)
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/8 teaspoon ground cloves


Pre-heat oven to 325°.  Beat the cream cheese, sugar and vanilla until well blended and smooth. Add eggs, one at a time, until well mixed.


Spread 1 + 1/3 cups of this cheesecake batter evenly over the graham cracker crust.


To the remaining cheesecake batter, gently whisk in the pumpkin puree and spices. GENTLY (and evenly) spread the pumpkin layer over the cheesecake layer. 


Bake in pre-heated oven for 35-40 minutes, or until the center is almost set (it will still jiggle just a little). My electric oven takes 40 minutes.


Allow to cool on the counter for an hour before you put it in the refrigerator to chill. Chill 3 hours or overnight.


After it’s chilled, lift the bars out of the pan by tugging on the parchment paper liner. Cut into squares.


Store (covered well)in fridge or freeze.


ENJOY !!!

Tie Dyed Cheesecake Brownies – Southern Plate by Gordon Ramsay

Tie Dyed Cheesecake Brownies


Tie Dyed Cheesecake Brownies

I first started making Tie Dyed Cheesecake brownies when my son was in elementary school, over ten years ago. With just a few gel food colors, I could always impress him with brownies to match any occasion! Over the years I’ve made them in Minecraft colors, Dr Who colors (it is possible), and more. Today I’m showing you a beautiful blue color combination that is perfect for Frozen fans, any winter gathering, or even Hanukkah! 

These super impressive brownies are easy as can be to make, too. You’ll be just as impressed as the folks who get to eat them! Tie Dyed Cheesecake Brownies Ingredients

To make Tie Dyed Cheesecake Brownies, you’ll need brownie mix* and ingredients to make them according to the package, two shades of gel food coloring**, vanilla, egg, cream cheese, and sugar. 

*You can absolutely make these homemade. However, this brownie mix is amazing and I’ve been using it for years now. This is in no way sponsored, I don’t do any work with this brand, but I’m passing this on because y’all need to know! I’m known for my brownies – and this is how I usually make them!

**You can use regular food coloring in this but gel food coloring is much prettier and will lend more vibrant colors without adding much at all. You can get gel food coloring at Walmart, craft stores, etc. The Wilton brand food coloring is gel as well so if that is what you find first it’s just fine. 

Tie Dyed Cheesecake Brownies Batter in pan

Prepare brownie mix according to the package and place in a greased or parchment lined 8×8 baking dish. 

Mixing Cream Cheese for Tie Dyed Cheesecake BrowniesPlace room temp cream cheese, sugar, egg, and vanilla in a medium mixing bowl and beat until smooth and well mixed. 

Coloring Cream Cheese for Tie Dyed Cheesecake Brownies

Divide Cream cheese mixture into three parts. Leave one undyed and stir in each of the blue shades into one bowl until blended. 

Dolloping Cream Cheese on Tie Dyed Cheesecake Brownies

Place dollops of cream cheese all over the top of your brownies.

Tie Dyed Cheesecake Brownies all swirled up!

Gently swirl with a butterknife, being careful to just swirl but not stir so much that you blend. It should look about like this. 

Tie Dyed Cheesecake Brownies

Let them cool a bit before cutting and then admire your beautiful cheesecake brownies, that are as pretty as they are yummy!

See why I brag on this mix so much? Seriously, it’s perfect.

Tie Dyed Cheesecake Brownies

Ingredients

  • One box Ghiradelli Brownie mix and ingredients required on package
  • 8 ounces cream cheese well softened and at room temp
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla*
  • two shades of blue gel food coloring*

Instructions

  • Prepare brownie mix according to package directions. Spread batter into greased or parchment lined 8×8 pan.

  • In large bowl, combine softened cream cheese, egg, vanilla, and sugar. Mix until smooth and creamy with electric mixer.

  • Divide cream cheese mixture into three bowls. Tint two of the bowls the different shades of blue (one shade per bowl) and leave one white.

  • Using a spoon, put dollops of each color all over top of brownies (see post for photos). Take a butter knife and gently swirl icing until blended and looking like tie dye.

  • Bake at 350 for 30 minutes, or until set in the center. Allow to cool completely before cutting into bars.

Can also do this in muffin papers to make individual brownies. Just put a dollop of each color cheese cake mixture on top of brownie batter in each muffin cup. Bake approximately 20- 25 minutes, or until set in center.

How to soften cream cheese

I usually just leave the cream cheese out on the countertop for an hour or two to soften, but if you are pressed for time, an easy way to soften the cream cheese is to use the defrost function on your microwave. Place the cream cheese unwrapped in a bowl, then select the lowest setting on defrost. Mine usually takes about 45 seconds. That’s it!

Can you use real whipped cream instead of whipped topping?

If you can’t find Cool Whip, which is the brand name of whipped topping where you live or you prefer not to use it in recipes, you can use stabilized whipped cream instead. If you just use regular whipped cream, the consistency will be too light and the cream will not hold up very well when mixed into the jello salad. It’s very simple to make your own stabilized whipped cream and it just takes a few minutes!

How do you make stabilized whipped cream?

To make stabilized whipped cream, you will need the following ingredients:

  • 4 ounces of cream cheese (softened to room temperature)
  • 1/3 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream.
  1. Beat the cream cheese with the powdered sugar and vanilla until soft and smooth.
  2. In a separate bowl, beat the whipping cream just until soft peaks form.
  3. Add the cream cheese mixture to the whipped cream and beat until stiff peaks are formed. Store in the refrigerator until ready to use.

A little tip for making whipped cream faster. Use a metal bowl for whipping the cream and place the bowl in the freezer for about 30 minutes before you make the whipped cream. This will significantly decrease the amount of time that you will need to beat the whipped cream – the process will go much faster!
