Marbled Pumpkin Lime Cheesecake Bars

Esta entrada también está disponible en: Español

If you’re like me, and I suspect you are, you enjoy having a festive treat to serve your family and friends during the holiday season. Enter these little beauties. I love them. In fact, I love these Marbled Pumpkin Lime Cheesecake Bars so much, I think I’ll count the ways.

In partnership with Truvía®

First, they’re easy and incredibly tasty, a completely necessary, yet not sufficient, requirement for a holiday treat.

Second, they feature seasonal flavors we love, need and simply expect at this time of year. My younger son, by the way, relishes every bite of anything with pumpkin and traditional pumpkin spices.

Third, in our multi-cultural family, these Marbled Pumpkin Lime Cheesecake Bars check off a lot of boxes. More on that in a minute.

Fourth, they have a lot less sugar than you might think, but still deliver just the right sweetness. The secret is using Truvía® Cane Sugar Blend, a blend of stevia sweetener and cane sugar with 75% fewer calories per serving than sugar.

And lastly, they look spectacular, emphasizing the festive in the festivities.

Many Cultures, One Celebration

Now about checking the boxes in our multi-cultural family. Since I grew up in Mexico, and my husband in California, we like to blend our two and sometimes very different traditions during the holidays. He grew up with pumpkin pie, for instance, and I had never heard of it before I met him (although I’m glad I have now!). I, on the other hand, must consider very suspiciously, by my very nature, any recipe that doesn’t include lime! So these bars meet both our traditional needs.

I hope you enjoy them as much as we do.

Marbled Pumpkin Lime Cheesecake Bars

Makes 16 2″x 2″ bars

Prep time: 15 minutes – Start to Finish: 1hr 30 min (including 50 minutes of baking)

Ingredients

For the Crust

  • 1 1/2 cups pulverized lemon wafers (approx. 200 gr)
  • 6 tablespoons melted, unsalted butter

For the Filling

  • 12 oz cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup Truvía Cane Sugar Blend, divided
  • 1/2 cup evaporated milk, divided
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1 cup pumpkin pureé
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

For Serving

  • 1 cup whipping cream
  • 1 teaspoon Truvía Cane Sugar Blend
  • 1 teaspoon lime juice
  • The zest of 1/2 lime

Pre-heat oven 350° F.

In an 8 inch square heat resistant glass baking dish, mix the pulverized wafers and butter. With your hands press until you cover the bottom of the dish. Place in the freezer.

With a mixer, mix well the cream cheese with 1/4 cup Truvía Cane Sugar Blend until it looks creamy. Then, mix in evaporated milk, 2 eggs, and 1 tablespoon lime juice until smooth.

In a medium bowl, whisk together canned pumpkin, 1/4 cup Truvía Cane Sugar Blend, pumpkin spice, evaporated milk and one egg. Set aside.

Pour the lime and cheese mixture into the baking dish. Then add the pumpkin mixture in three lines (see photo).

With a wooden stick or spoon integrate the pumpkin randomly to create a marbling effect.

Creating the marble effect

Bake for 50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out cleanly.

Refrigerate until firm. 

Lastly, beat cream until thickened, approximately 2 minutes. Add Truvía Cane Sugar Blend and continue beating until the cream starts forming peaks. Don’t overdo it or you will end up with butter. Incorporate lime juice and lime zest. Keep in the fridge until ready to serve. 

Cut cheesecake into 16 2×2 inch squares. Serve with the whipped cream. 

Enjoy!
