BEST Blondies with Pumpkin Spice

Blondies get a bad wrap because so many of them are dry or flavorless – but not these! You will LOVE these blondies because:

  • The are ALWAYS soft – they stay soft for days
  • RICH in flavor because of all the brown sugar
  • TONS of flavor – never bland
  • Are full of pumpkin pie spice!
  • Add white chocolate chips for some extra fall flavor!

Ingredients in Pumpkin Spice Blondies

Butter: All the best blondies start with butter! Be sure to use softened butter.

Brown Sugar: 2 FULL cups of brown sugar – be sure to pack it. All that brown sugar keeps them super soft.

Eggs: These add moisture and fat for a nice soft and chewy cookie bar.

Baking Powder: While normal cookie bars have baking soda, these have baking powder which helps with the structure.

Salt and Vanilla: For flavor

Pumpkin Pie Spice: Gives these that warm fall flavor! Make homemade pumpkin pie spice if you don’t have the mix.

All Purpose Flour: Be sure to measure it correctly.

White Chocolate Chips: These are optional but I love the sweet flavor mixed with the pumpkin spice.

How to make Pumpkin Spice Blondies

  1. Cream the butter and brown sugar with a hand or a stand mixer.
  2. Add the eggs, vanilla, baking powder, salt and pumpkin pie spice.
  3. Mix in the white chocolate chips.
  4. Press into a 9×13-inch baking pan that’s been lined with foil and sprayed with nonstick cooking spray. The mixture is sticky so spray your hands with cooking spray so it won’t stick to you.

Variations and Tips for making Blondies

  • Using a hand or a stand mixer will help mix the dough easily.
  • Make sure your butter is softened by leaving it out on the counter for an hour before making the cookie bars.
  • Omit the white chocolate chips if you prefer, or add nuts or toffee bits, or even chocolate chips.
  • Don’t want pumpkin spice? Just use cinnamon!
  • The dough is sticky so spray your hands with cooking spray to press them into the pan.
  • These finish baking as they set and cool so take them out when they are still a little jiggly in the center.
