Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Blondies

It’s time . . . I’ve held off as long as I can.  It’s definitely time for some pumpkin recipes!  These Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Blondies are so good and so easy to make – a perfect way to start the pumpkin parade this year.  This recipe makes a 13 x 9 pan of a moist and delicious pumpkin bar complete with all the right seasonings.  Throw in some chocolate chips to finish things off  and you get a wonderful taste of fall!

Hint:  If you line your pan with foil, you can lift the bars right out of the pan for easy cutting.



 Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Blondies


2 cups flour
1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup butter, at room temperature
1 1/4 cups sugar
1 large egg
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 cup canned pumpkin puree
1 1/4 cup chocolate chips, divided


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line bottom and sides of a 9-by-13-inch baking pan with foil, leaving an overhang on all sides. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, pie spice, baking soda, and salt; set aside

With an electric mixer, cream butter and sugar on medium-high speed until smooth; beat in egg and vanilla until combined. Beat in pumpkin puree (mixture may appear curdled). Reduce speed to low, and mix in dry ingredients until just combined. Fold in 1 cup of the chocolate chips.

Spread batter evenly in prepared pan. Sprinkle remaining chocolate chips over the batter.  Bake until edges begin to pull away from sides of pan and a toothpick inserted in center comes out with just a few moist crumbs attached, 30 to 35 minutes. Cool completely in pan.

Lift cake from pan (using foil as an aid). Peel off foil, and use a serrated knife to cut into 24 squares.
