Pumpkin Brownies

Pumpkin Brownies

ImageIngredients:

  • 1/2 cup butter, room temperature
  • 1/2  cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/4 tsp ground allspice
  • 1/4 tsp ground cloves
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup graham cracker crumbs
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
  • 3/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 2/3 cup chopped nuts

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Lightly grease an 8×8-inch baking dish.
  2. In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Beat in spices, salt, graham cracker crumbs, egg and  pumpkin puree. Sift flour into the bowl and stir it in, mixing until just combined. Add in nuts and stir to evenly distribute the nuts.
  3. Pour batter into prepared baking dish and spread into an even layer.
  4. Bake for 20-25 minutes, until the brownies are just just lightly browned at the edges and the center is set (it may look moist, but will not be sticky when lightly pressed). Cool in the pan before slicing.

Makes 16-20 bars
