Just about any Thanksgiving dessert can be portable, but the best are desserts that won’t spill or get ruined if they happen to tip. You should have already had your vehicle serviced at SouthTowne Motors, so now you’re ready to plan which desserts you are taking to your family gathering. Once you have this done, you’re ready to hit the road.

Pumpkin Cheesecake Brownies

  • 1 box of your favorite brownie mix or homemade recipe
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 2/3 cup maple sugar or Rapadura
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1 large egg
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon allspice
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Mix the brownies as directed by your recipe or favorite box mix. Butter a 13-inch by 9-inch baking dish. Spread the brownies in the baking dish.

Using an electric mixer, cream the cream cheese and maple sugar until the mixture is fluffy. Beat in the rest of the ingredients except the pumpkin. Once the mixture is well-mixed, fold in the pumpkin puree. Spread this mixture over the top of the brownies. Bake 45 to 50 minutes. Cool completely before serving.

Individual Pies

Make your favorite pie crust or use store-bought crust. Cut the crust into shapes with cookie cutters. Mix softened cream cheese and enough sugar to make the cream cheese sweet, plus 1 teaspoon vanilla until well-incorporated. Dice strawberries, peaches or use small wild blueberries. Put a dab of the cream cheese mixture on one of the shaped pieces of pie crust. Add a dab of the cream cheese mix, then top with the fruit. Cover with a second pie dough shape.

Brush with well-mixed egg and sprinkle sugar over the top. Bake them until the pie crust is browned. The size of your shapes will determine baking time, so watch the first batch carefully and make note of the time so you can just set the timer for the second batch.
