I got this recipe out of my Breast Cancer Awareness Better Homes And Gardens Cook Book. I have had this cookbook for a couple years, but just made this recipe last week for the first time. Why didn't I make it earlier! Yum! I actually made the whole recipes, and we had Blondies off and on for about a week for dessert, or evening snack. Delish:)


2 c packed brown sugar
2/3 cup butter
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla ( of course I used more )
2 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 c chopped almonds, pecans, or cashews. ( I had pecans)

-Preheat oven to 350
-Grease and flour 13X9X2 inch pan
-In med sauce pan, heat and stir brown sugar and butter over medium heat until butter melts and mixture is smooth. Cool slightly.
-Stir in eggs one at a time to butter brown sugar mixture.
-Stir in vanilla
-In separate bowl mix flour baking powder and baking soda together. After mixed, stir into butter mixture till smooth.
-Spread batter in prepared baking pan.
-Sprinkle with nuts.
-Bake 25-30 minutes or until wooden toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
-Cool slightly in a pan on a wire rack. Cut into bars while warm.

-I served them warm with a scoop of ice cream on top, and a drizzle of warm carmel:)

    That dip is super thick so your pumpkin puree may be fine. I think cream cheese would make it even better. Like I said you have to love pumpkin pie to like this.
