Delish! All pumpkin pie lovers out there will go crazy over this recipe.

I loooove pumpkin pie (and anything pumpkin) and I noticed that the two desserts have similar consistencies. I do have to say that the crust on the Pumpkin Gooey Butter Bars is a hundred times better than Pumpkin Pie crust.

This recipe even has you looking forward to eating the crust!!

It’s all about the details… If you look closely, you can spot some little specks of cinnamon and nutmeg.

The bars are extraordinarily flavorful! I was more than happy with how these turned out. Pumpkin Gooey Butter Bars are a must-make for any party or gathering in Fall. My family demolished half of the pan within an hour of making these… oops!

Pumpkin Gooey Butter Bars



  • 1 box yellow cake mix
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, melted


  • One 8-ounce package cream cheese, softened
  • One 15-ounce can unsweetened pumpkin puree
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, melted
  • One 16-ounce box powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg


  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.  Spray a 9x13-inch baking pan with nonstick spray.
  2. Prepare the crust:  In a large bowl, use an electric mixer to combine the cake mix, egg and butter.  Pat the mixture into the bottom of your prepared pan.
  3. Prepare the filling:  In a large bowl, use an electric mixer to combine the cream cheese and pumpkin until smooth.  Add the eggs, vanilla and butter- beat well.  Mix in the powdered sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg until well-combined.  Spread the filling over the cake batter and bake 40 to 50 minutes.  Don't overbake- you want the center to be a little gooey!
