I used the Tastefully Simple Almond Pound Cake mix, and borrowed the cream cheese filling that I use in my Cranberry Nibble Bread recipe that I make to serve with the Thanksgiving turkey dinner. You could make these as Halloween treats at the kids’ parties at school too!
If you’re wondering why many of my photos show that I’m using aluminum foil pans for baking, well, I do own many nice baking dishes! The majority of my creative cooking and baking is done on weekends for Sunday night dinner either at my house or my daughter’s house. This way I know I don’t have to worry about when I’ll be getting my good white porcelain baking dishes and pans back!
I served these yummy pumpkin cream cheese bars with guess what – my homemade Pumpkin Ice Cream ! I’ve also made my own homemade ice cream. What a delightful duo, and used some Cool Whip as a topping. You can use canned dairy whipped cream, or make the real thing yourself!
