pumpkin pie brownies

Pumpkin pie brownies are two of my favorite things – pumpkin and chocolate! YES. This recipe is so easy and SO good.

so i had a stressful weekend.  first…scout, my dog, ate rat poison.  yes.  i didnt even know it was in my house.  dill the cat must have found it and attempted to murder his sister. (he knows she will literally eat ANYTHING)  so that was a wild night.  she’s fine.  i learned that to induce vomiting you feed dogs hydrogen peroxide.  lucky for me…she thought it was tasty as could be.  what can i say.  she marches to the beat of her own crazy drum.  but thank heavens…my girl is back to normal.  THEN…i scratched my cornea.  so i’ve been walking around with one contact looking like i’m sobbing for 3 days.  this is pretty standard for me…i have a corneal dystrophy that is hereditary.  its been happening about twice a year since i was 5.  (see exhibit A below: yes my mom drew an eyeball on my eye patch as a child.  to help me ‘fit in’) so it’s not a huge deal…but it still hurts.

so long story long, i needed comfort food.  PUMPKIN PIE BROWNIES!!!!! mmmm.

Pumpkin Pie Brownies

i’m choosing this as my first recipe to make…because its the first recipe i’ve actually come up with myself…in my entire life.  it’s also incredibly easy and incredibly good.  and let’s not forget i’m the cooking virgin.  so of course i used a pre-made brownie mix.  no ‘from scratch’ stuff going on here yet.  but i still think these brownies have some flare…and they taste delicious.  they are the perfect beginners dessert.  they are the perfect thing for beginners such as myself to take to a bbq or work function.  can’t mess them up! these also get the seal of approval from scout.  the first batch were eaten by her.  she’s fat for a reason folks…

Pumpkin Pie Brownies

first things first…you need to make both parts of the final product; the brownie mix and the pumpkin pie mix.  for the brownie mix…pick whatever brownie mix makes you happy and follow the directions on the box.  mix in one bowl.  i like to add chocolate chips to the brownie mix.  stir them in and set the bowl and set to the side.  mix the pumpkin, cream cheese (softened), sugar, and pumpkin pie spice in another bowl.  i’m all about very detailed pictures…so here ya go :)

next you’re ready to put the brownies in the pan.  pre-heat your oven to whatever it says on the brownie mix box.  usually 350 works well.  (from my limited experience :) spray the pan with cooking spray before starting.  pour half of the brownie mix into the pan and spread out so the entire bottom of the pan is covered.  don’t forget to taste test a little bit of the batter.  brownie batter is one of the best things on the planet.

next add the pumpkin.  you can either spoon the pumpkin filling onto the brownie in chunks or spread it out evenly.  both options turn out well.  cover the pumpkin with the rest of the brownie batter and smooth out the top.  see below:

now you’re ready to bake! i added 10 minutes to the directions on the box (cooked for 35 minutes for my pan size).  since you’re adding quite a bit of depth with the pumpkin mix…you’ll need to cook longer.  one good tip i’ve learned from my mom: to check if brownies are done…dip a fork into the middle of the brownies.  if the fork comes out clean…its done.  good tip mom!
