Pumpkin Blondies

More pumpkin!

These are so, so good, you must make them for yourself!

Mine sort of fell apart, I didn't wait for them to cool long enough, not really an issue...

They are softer and fluffier than you would expect for a blondie (usually sort of thick and chewy). Just so you know.


2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice
1 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 large egg
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup pumpkin puree
1 cup white chocolate chips
1 cup butterscotch chips
1/2 cup chopped, toasted nuts (optional)

Line a 9x13-inch baking dish with foil. In a medium bowl, combine the flour, pumpkin pie spice, baking soda and salt. Stir together and set aside.

In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat together the butter and sugar on medium-high speed until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Beat in the egg and vanilla until well combined. Mix in the pumpkin puree. With the mixer on low speed add the dry ingredients and mix just until incorporated. Fold in the white chocolate and butterscotch chips (and nuts, if using) with a rubber spatula. Spread the batter evenly into the prepared pan.

Bake at 350 degrees until the edges begin to pull away from the sides of the pan and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 40-45 minutes. Transfer the pan to a wire rack and let cool completely before cutting.

To serve, lift the cake from the pan using the foil and transfer to a cutting board. Peel off the foil and using a sharp knife, cut into 24 squares.

Yield: 24
