Pumpkin Brownies

The Fall, Pumpkin obsession. A recipe of my own creation!

Pumpkin Brownies
makes one 8x8 pan

6 Tbs Unsalted Butter, room temperature
1 Cup + 2 Tbs Sugar
1 tsp Vanilla
2 Eggs
2/3 Cup Cake Flour + 1/4 Cup AP Flour
      (Or 3/4 Cup AP flour, if cake flour is not available)
1/4 tsp Baking powder
1/3 Cup Cocoa Powder
1/2 tsp Pumpkin Spice
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 Cup Pumpkin puree

Preheat oven to 350.
In mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar. Add vanilla and eggs, mix well.
In separate bowl whisk together flours, baking powder, cocoa, pumpkin spice and salt.  Slowly add dry ingredients to butter mixture and combine.  Mixture will be thick.  Mix well and be sure to scrape the sides of the bowl.  Add pumpkin and swirl briefly, but not to fully combine with brownie batter.
Pour batter into a parchment lined or greased 8x8 dish.
Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes.
*For 2 Bite Brownies: use mini cupcake pan and coat with cooking spray or muffin papers. Each takes about a Tablespoon of batter. (Makes 36)  Bake for 13-15 minutes or until tester comes out clean.

Mmm, betcha have more than one!
