Recipe: Pumpkin chocolate chip blondies
- 2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 tbsp pumpkin pie spice
- 1 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 cup unsalted butter
- 1 3/4 cups granulated sugar
- 1 large egg
- 1 1/2 cups pumpkin puree
- 2 tbsp pure vanilla extract
- 1-1/2 cups dark chocolate chips
1 Preheat the oven to 350F.
2 On a large piece of parchment paper, sift together the flour, pumpkin pie spice, baking soda and salt; set aside.
3 In a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, beat the butter on medium speed. Add the sugar and beat until light and fluffy.
4 Add the egg, pumpkin puree and vanilla and beat until fully combined.
5 Scrape down the sides of the bowl. Turn the mixer to low, add the dry ingredients and mix until fully combined.
6 Fold in the chocolate chips. Spread the batter evenly into a buttered, parchment paper-lined 9" x 13" pan and smooth the top with a spatula
or the back of a large spoon.
7 Bake for 35 to 40 minutes, or until a wooden skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean.
8 Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely.
9 Run a small knife along the edges of the pan. Carefully remove the slab from the pan and cut into approximately 2" x 2" bars. Make sure to use at least a 10" knife to avoid dragging the knife across the bars.
Makes 24 blondies.
