I'm Dreaming of a Pumpkin Blondie...

I've reading of, and dreaming of pumpkin blondies. I dream about work a lot. Usually the dreams aren't this yummy, but last night, I was lucky! I knew yesterday I wanted to make pumpkin blondies...or I was thinking about it, more accurately.I have been trying to wait patiently, but I couldn’t anymore. After the Harvest Pumpkin Bread using the Marathon Mix (31017) I posted last month, I’ve been dying to work with pumpkin again, my favorite fall ingredient! I've been holding off since it technically is still September, even if today is the last day, but this morning when I woke up I could hold off no longer. Pumpkin Blondies…I needed them. I've been reading some other blogs and no less than three bloggers have made them already, so no holding back now! I wanted pumpkin blondies with butterscotch chips, white chips and walnuts, so I got right to it. Now, I made two batches, I like chewy, under-baked and kind of doughy I like my cookies but I also made a version that was a little more baked for some normalcy. They are sweet, taste of fall and even though I must, I hate the thought of giving them away! Check out my blog to see how they turned out, and the formula and method. You need to make these this weekend!!

So, here is what I did…(NEWSLETTER READERS...START HERE!) but I should tell you I used too many inclusions. I am going to recommend less…much less for you. To make sure I adjust the amounts correctly from the formula on the bag, I checked in with my guru at the office, Christophe. Christophe can do, fix, create anything. He reminded me that pumpkin is about 90% water so there are some tweaks that need to happen. See tweaked formula below!
