Soft, dense Pumpkin Blondies are loaded with caramel baking chips and pumpkin flavor, grab a cold glass of milk and enjoy the perfect fall treat!
In honor of the kick off of #PumpkinWeek 2017 I thought I would jump right in with my favorite kind of recipe, dessert! Ever since I had the twins I love a good cookie bar recipe, for two reasons; its faster and easier than baking multiple batches of cookies. Of course if you’ve been reading this blog for any amount of time you might already know that I love brownies. I even have a pumpkin brownie recipe, so naturally I thought the next best thing would be blondies.
These Pumpkin Blondies are soft and dense, loaded with caramel baking chips and pumpkin flavors and are sure to be a hit with your family and friends. I baked up a batch of them for my sweet neighbors who were so kind and helpful to our family during and after Hurricane Irma, seriously I have some of the nicest neighbors ever!
Fall means pumpkin recipes, specifically pumpkin desserts around here, I hope you make the time to try these soon. Don’t forget to share them with you your loved ones and friends, enjoy and happy baking!
Yield 9 bars
Soft, dense Pumpkin Blondies are loaded with caramel baking chips and pumpkin flavor.
1/4 c butter, softened
1/2 c brown sugar
1/4 c sugar
1/3 c pumpkin puree
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1 c flour
1/2 c caramel baking chips
1/4 c chopped pecans
Preheat the oven to 350º F, line an 8"x8" baking pan with foil and lightly coat with cooking spray. In a mixing bowl beat together the butter and sugars until fluffy, add the egg, pumpkin puree and vanilla, mix until smooth. Add the salt, cinnamon and flour and stir until it just comes together, then fold in the caramel baking chips and pecans. Spread the batter into the prepared baking pan and bake for 25-27 minutes, until lightly golden on top and a tester comes out with just a few crumbs. Cool in the pan for 15 minutes, then lift the foil out by the edges and let cool another 10 minutes. Slice and serve, store leftover bars in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
