Pumpkin Cream Cheese Bars

Well I'm pumpkined out.  This is the last of my pumpkin recipes in my file.  I think you will like it though because it is super easy and tastes wonderful.  Tweak it anyway you would like.  You could use a yellow cake mix if you have that in your pantry (follow it's directions on ingredients) or season it according to your pallet.

1 box angel food cake mix (the 1 step kind)
1 15 oz. can pumpkin
3/4 cup water
1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

1 8 oz. pkg. whipped cream cheese
1/4 cup cream
1/4 powdered sugar

Preheat your oven to what ever the cake mix box recommends.

Mix the cake mix, pumpkin, water, and spices together until it is smooth & well mixed, but do not over mix.

In a separate bowl, whip the cream cheese, cream and sugar until it is smooth.

Spray a 9 x 13 inch pan with oil.  Add half of the cake pumpkin mix. Then smooth it out with a rubber spatula. Drizzle half of the cream cheese mixture over the top of it and take a small spatula to smooth it over the top. Add remaining cake pumpkin mix and  also the remaining cream cheese just making layers.

Take a butter knife and go back & forth over the top of the cake making figure 8 to blend it a bit to get the above desired effect.

Bake according to the box mix directions.  Let cool and cut into bars.  

Be happy and may God bless you and yours.
