Brown your butter! It lends caramel-like flavour and makes a couple of pats of butter taste like much more. Pumpkin purée helps, too, by adding moisture along with flavour. The difference between browned butter and burned butter? Using a light-colored saucepan. Since you can see the butter browning against the surface, you’ll be able to remove it from the heat before it gets to charred territory.


Cooking spray

4 spray(s)

Unsalted butter

4 tbsp(s)

Packed brown sugar

½ cup(s)

Pumpkin puree

½ cup(s), canned

Pumpkin pie spice

1 tsp(s), plus more for dusting

Vanilla extract

1 tsp(s)

Baking powder

¾ tsp(s)

Kosher salt

½ tsp(s)


1 large

All-purpose flour

1 cup(s)


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line an 8-inch square baking pan with foil or parchment paper, leaving a few inches of overhang on the sides. Coat the foil or parchment with cooking spray.
  2. In a small saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Cook until the butter is medium-brown and very fragrant, 4 to 5 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat and whisk in the sugar, pumpkin, pie spice, and vanilla. Sprinkle the baking powder and salt on top and whisk in. Whisk in the egg. Stir in the flour until just combined. Scrape the batter into the prepared pan and spread into an even layer.
  3. Bake until a wooden toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean or with only a few moist crumbs, 18 to 20 minutes. Using the foil or parchment overhang, lift the blondies out of the pan. Cut into 16 squares. Let cool completely, or serve warm. Before serving, dust with more pumpkin pie spice.
  4. Serving size: 1 blondie
