I thought I was finished with pumpkin recipes for this season. However, 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.

  1. These were very good. Most of my guests had two they liked them so much. My 2 year old and 5 year old loved them too.

  2. Hi, Paula! I just stumbled across a friends post on fb and walah! there you were. First off, omg! These recipes sound and look amazing. Cannot wait to try. I adore pumpkin AND sweet potato (it’s a suth’n thang!) and would love your make and take on sweet potato recipes. I love your wit and humor that you inject in your blog and laugh out loud over your “scratch out”, saying what you really mean!!

  3. I’m in Australia and we can’t buy pumpkin purée (or canned pumpkin filling). How much pumpkin would I need to cook and mash for this recipe? We can’t get pumpkin spice either so what could I substitute for that? Thankyou.

    1. Ok, here is a recipe for pumpkin pie spice -3 tablespoons ground cinnamon, 2 teaspoons ground ginger, 2 teaspoons ground nutmeg, 1 and ½ teaspoons ground allspice and 1 and ½ teaspoons ground cloves. Mix the spices together. Store in an airtight container.

      I have only used pumpkin puree, but this is a great article on using fresh:

      hope this helps, Wendy.
