It’s finally fall, and fall means pumpkin. I’m always trying to find new ways to use pumpkin, so I hopped on over to Pinterest on the quest for a simple, creative, and (of course) delicious recipe. Chocolate chip blondies and soft, chewy snickerdoodles are two of my favorite desserts, so why not combine the two and add pumpkin into the mix?

Sit back, relax, and enjoy the amazing smell wafting from your kitchen as these bake. Then dig in and fulfill three cravings at once — so efficient. You go, Glen Coco.

  • 1 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
  • 4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

    Add pumpkin, vanilla, pumpkin pie spice, and eggs. Mix until well incorporated.

  • Step 4

    Add flour. Stir on low until well incorporated.

    #SpoonTip: Be careful not to over-mix. Stop the mixer when a few streaks of flour remain.

    Add chocolate chips. Fold in with a rubber spatula.

  • Step 6

    Spread evenly in prepared pan.

  • Step 7

    In a separate bowl, stir together cinnamon and granulated sugar.

    Bake for approximately 26 minutes (or until a wooden toothpick comes out clean). Let cool for at least 30 minutes before cutting into bars.

    #SpoonTip: Baking time may vary depending on your oven, altitude, etc. Change your time accordingly, and be sure to always use that trusty toothpick.
