Pumpkin Pecan Cheesecake BitesThe intention of this recipe was to stretch one box mix of pumpkin pie bars that served 10 people, into pumpkin pecan cheesecake bites that served 20. It was a total success, especially for those relying on portion control. I found the pumpkin pie bar box mix for $1.49 at the market, and had everything else on hand. These came out SO yummy and there was very little work involved.


To bake them, I used 1 mini springform pan, 1 regular cupcake tin, and 1 mini cupcake tin. This was perfect for a nice layout for a gathering of adults and children. You can use one large springform pan instead. You can also use any dessert bar box mix to make cheesecake using this method.

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 40 minutes

Total Time: 1 hour

Yield: 20 servings




  1. Preheat oven to 350 F. Lightly grease the baking pans. Pulse animal crackers and 1/4 cup pecans together in a food processor.

  11. Give the 1/2 cup of pecans an extra chopping so it's a bit finer, but not a dust.

  13. Stir into the filling.
  14. pecans added to Pumpkin
  15. Pour the mixture over the crust. Bake times are lower for smaller sized bites. If you're using a full sized 9-inch pan, full baking time will be 40 minutes. My mini cupcake sized ones only took 20 minutes. I set a timer for each different size.
