Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Snickerdoodle Blondies – such a decadent dessert shouldn’t be so easy to make.
These blondies are simple, perfect and delicious.
I thought I was finished with pumpkin desserts, but then I wanted to take a ‘fallish’ dessert to our tailgate party this weekend. Brownies and blondies are always a hit. Anything that doesn’t require a plate or utensil is always popular at tailgating, game day parties or picnics. My Chocolate Chip Pumpkin snickerdoodle Blondies were no exception.
I’m pretty sure heaven smells like these blondies while they’re baking!
Dense and decadent, these bars are everything you want in a pumpkin dessert. These bars are more comparable to fudge than to cake, in my opinion. That’s a good thing.
Snickerdoodles are a classic and have been a family favorite for years.
Traditional Snickerdoodles have a chewy, soft center and are topped with the beloved cinnamon sugar mixture. I kicked this favorite cookie up by adding pumpkin and making them into bars, or pan cookies, or blondies. Whatever you prefer to call them.
I call them delicious!
While this recipe makes just 9 large bars (an 8×8 inch pan) there’s more than enough to satisfy your sweet tooth.
I spiked the pumpkin bars with semi-sweet chocolate chips and dusted them with cinnamon sugar. They’re moist and stay soft for a couple of days. Trust me, they won’t last much longer than that.
I kind of liked them better the second day after the flavors mellowed out a bit.
So that’s it. This is a really easy dessert.
