Hi everyone! I’m Gina from Kleinworth & Co. I’m so excited to be here posting my first recipe as a monthly contributor for one of my most favorite places- The 36th Avenue. This time of year is so fun for getting creative in the kitchen. I love getting in there with my kids & seeing what we can come up with using some of our favorite seasonal ingredients. With Thanksgiving around the corner, we decided to blend traditional flavors of pumpkin & cinnamon into a very tasty bite sized snack.
I was so thrilled when I found the little Cinnamon Chips at the store. Perfect for this time of year.
(Since cinnamon is my son’s favorite flavor I will be using them for as long as I can find them – hopefully year round)
Instead of a traditional size blondie I thought it would be fun to make them more bite sized.
Just pop & go.
- 9 tbsp butter
- 1-2/3 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- ¾ tsp coarse sea salt
- 1 cup packed brown sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp vanilla
- ¾ bag cinnamon chips
- 4 tbsp Slow Cooker Pumpkin Butter divided
- Line an 8x8 glass baking dish with parchment & spray lightly with cooking spray. Allow sides to hang over a little. Set aside.
- Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
- In mixer- combine butter & brown sugar. Beat well until light & fluffy & well combined.
- Add in eggs & vanilla- mix until just combined
- Add in flour, baking soda & salt - beat well.
- Stir in ½ the bag of cinnamon chips
- Fold in 2 tbsp pumpkin butter.
- Transfer to prepared pan.
- Spread remaining pumpkin butter over top in light layer
- Sprinkle with desired amount of remaining cinnamon chips
- Bake 55-65 minutes or until toothpick test is mostly clean.
- Allow to cool 30 minutes in pan.
- Remove with parchment by pulling up & cool for an additional 1 hour.
- Cut & store in airtight container.
The spices in the Gingered Pumpkin Butter throughout adds a great depth in flavors.
I hope these are a hit in your house as much as they are in mine.
