Allow me to explain what a pumpkin brookie bar is... pumpkin cookie base + fudgy brownie top. You with me so far?
Pumpkin Brookie Bars
From Crazy For Crust
For the cookie layer:
1/2 cup melted butter
1/3 cup pumpkin puree
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 egg yolk
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt (if your butter is unsalted)
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp ginger
1 tsp cinnamon
1 3/4 cup flour
For the brownie layer:
1 box mix + ingredients to prepare
1. Preheat oven to 350 and grease a 13x9 inch pan.
2. Mix together butter, pumpkin, and sugars. Add egg yolk, vanilla, and spices and combine. Slowly add flour. Press dough into the prepared pan.
3. Mix brownie ingredients together and pour over cookie layer. Bake 25-35 minutes until the brownie is set in the middle. Let cool before slicing into bars.
These are every bit as wonderful as you are imagining right now.
Could you have imagined a more beautiful sight for your Thanksgiving dessert table? I think not.
