These pumpkin cheesecake cookie bars are chewy, gooey and creamy with a hint of cinnamon. Perfect addition to your Thanksgiving table.

I’m not a big fan of pumpkin pie. I blame it on the fact that I didn’t grow up eating it. So I try to bring something different to our Thanksgiving table, and to my surprise, I always find another person who is glad there is another option.

Two of my favorite desserts together, chocolate chip cookies and cheesecake. You can’t go wrong with that!

Make your favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe, if you don’t have one, check the one bellow. Then, some cheesecake filling. mmm.

Divide your cookie dough into 2 portions. Press one portion on the bottom of the pan, pour the cheesecake filling and sprinkle the rest of your cookie dough.

While this beauty is baking, your house is going to smell amazing! but be patient, the pan needs to cool down completely before cutting.

What kind of desserts do you make for Thanksgiving?

So looking forward to having all our friends around our table this Thursday. Happy Thanksgiving!
