A little while ago, I found an amazing deal at the grocery store! If you know me, you know that no matter what store I go into, I look for the clearance section! Lol! I was raised to always be frugal and look for the best deals!

So, I found several boxes of Foodstirs baked goods – chocolate chip cookies, brownies and a boxed snickerdoodle mix! All for $1 each! Amazing. I got several boxes to prepare for the holidays and a quick dessert option. I made the snickerdoodles for my friends when we had a game night and they were a huge hit! So, I decided I wanted to make my OWN version with a fun Fall twist! Thus, these Pumpkin Snickerdoodle Blondies were born! 

And boy am I happy they were!

Basically, these are an amazing fusion of pumpkin flavor along with the classic cinnamon sugar baked yumminess that you love. They have both pumpkin pie spice and pumpkin puree in them, making sure they are super duper warm and cozy yet also keeping them extra moist! They are so soft on the inside but never really cakey. The crunchy sugar topping is AMAZING with a twist. Instead of the normal granulated sugar and cinnamon mixture, I used turbinado sugar and pumpkin pie spice. It makes the topping extra crunchy and delicious. Obsessed.

And now you’re already ready to bake! Super easy one bowl amazingness right?!? 

Grease a 9×9 baking pan and gently spread your batter, making sure it’s evenly spread out over the pan. In a tiny bowl, add the turbinado sugar and pumpkin pie spice. Mix together and then spread over the entire top of the batter. It’s going to seem like a lot of sugar but that will ensure you get that delicious crunchy classic snickerdoodle topping!

Bake these for 28-30 minutes or until a toothpick comes clean. Once these are done, let them cool in the pan and then slice! I got 9 slices but feel free to slice them smaller if desired.

    I love that you used whole wheat flour in these blondies and lots of pumpkin puree! They look delicious Haylie, and the glistening sugar on top is such a nice touch! So fallish!
