Pumpkin Blondies

14 Sep

I don’t know about you, but I am ready for fall! We have had some cooler weather lately, and lots of rain. It makes me want to bake, bake, bake! These smelled absolutely heavenly while they were in the oven. I found these on Annie’s Eats. If you haven’t checked out her blog, you need to ASAP! She has the most mouth-watering recipes I have ever seen! Try these, you won’t regret it!


Pumpkin Blondies

source: Annie’s Eats, originally from Martha Stewart


  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup of butter, room temperature
  • 1 1/4 cup granulated sugar (or brown sugar)
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips (I used cinnamon)
  • 1 cup butterscotch chips
  • 1/2 cup chopped, toasted nuts (optional, I omitted)
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a 9 x 13 inch pan with foil. In a medium bowl, combine the flour, pumpkin pie spice, baking soda, and salt. Stir together and set aside.
  2. 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.
  3. Spread the batter evenly into the prepared pan. Bake until the edges begin to pull away from the sides of the pan and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out with just a few crumbs, about 35-40 minutes. Transfer the pan to a wire rack and let cool completely before cutting.
  4. 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.
