Author Notes

I love blondies and decided to just play one day with different combinations. The pumpkin butter in these just adds a sweetness that you can't tell what it is, but if you want a more pumpkin presence, I'd add pumpkin puree instead. —Jacquie Chamberlain

What You'll Need
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 cups brown sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoons orange zest
  • 2.5 cups unbleached, all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/3 cup pumpkin butter

  • 1 cup dark chocolate chips
  1. Preheat the oven to 350. Butter a 9 x 13 baking pan and set aside.
  2. With a stand or hand mixer, cream the butter and the sugar until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes.
  3. Add the eggs one at a time, scraping down the bowl in between each addition.
  4. Add the eggs one at a time, scraping down the bowl in between each addition.
  5. In another bowl, sift the flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt together. Add the flour mixture to the butter mixture and mix until just incorporated.
  6. Fold in the pumpkin butter and chocolate chips before pouring the batter into the baking pan.
  7. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until they’re brown on the edges and starting to pull away from the pan.

Sorry for not responding to your comments earlier. I can't make up any excuse other than I hadn't been on site signed in in a while and didn't expect the response. I hope you liked these!

I made these, and they are very tasty. My pumpkin butter is very sweet, so next time I'll cut some of the sugar out. Also, I think I'll add pecans. Thanks for the nice twist on the blondie.

Good idea! I used to hate nuts in desserts but in the recent months, I love them.

I LOVE blondies!!!! And I love pumpkin! So I've GOT to make these asap! Is pumpkin butter something I'll find at most grocery stores?

It should be, but if not, maybe you could swap it for some pureed pumpkin and add a little more sugar? I'm not sure but it could be a fun experiment!
