I baked these blondies today for my new neighbors. Since this is our first holiday in the new house, I wanted to do something nice for them. I wanted to bake something with a festive ingredient and also something that was easy to package. Chris and I sampled these blondies and were delighted to discover that they tasted like a pumpkin pie with eggnog. So if you dig pumpkin pie, bake a batch of these blondies today!
I recently discovered blondies. They’re all over the baking aisles at the market during the holiday season and for the longest time; I didn’t know what they were. I finally looked it up and found out it was a lighter version of brownies. And since I had some dark peanut butter cups lying around, which I’m not too fond of (I’m a milk chocolate fan), I thought —why not bake some and throw those in there?
Chris is a big fan of pumpkin. And every year, I bake a pumpkin pie around the fall time. This year, I thought I change things up and bake him a coffee cake instead. He loved it so much; he’s not willing to share it. If you’re a big pumpkin fan, this is a good recipe to try.
