Gold Medal Flour

Ingredients

Cookie Base and Topping

  • 1 pouch (1 lb 1.5 oz) Betty Crocker™ sugar cookie mix
  • 1/4 cup cold butter
  • 4 oz (half of 8-oz package) cream cheese, cold

Pumpkin Filling

  • 4 oz (half of 8-oz package) cream cheese, well-softened
  • 1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon canned pumpkin (not pumpkin pie mix)
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. Generously spray bottom and sides of 13x9-inch pan with cooking spray.
  • 2
    Place cookie mix in large bowl. Using pastry blender or fork, cut in butter and 4 oz cream cheese until mixture is crumbly (crumbs should be about pea-sized). Reserve 1 cup cookie mixture for Topping; set aside. Firmly press remaining cookie mixture evenly into bottom of pan.
  • 3
    In small bowl, stir together 4 oz cream cheese, the sugar, pumpkin and flour. Stir in pumpkin pie spice until smooth. Spread over Cookie Base in pan. Sprinkle with reserved crumbs for Topping.
  • 4
    Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until edges are golden brown. Cool completely in pan, about 30 minutes. Run metal spatula around edge to loosen. Cut into 4 rows by 3 rows.

  • Cut the bar of cream cheese in half and refrigerate one while also softening the other—this speeds up the preparation.
  • If desired, sprinkle with powdered sugar just before serving.
