Pumpkin Eggnog Blondies

Pumpkin Eggnog Blondies

I baked these blondies today for my new neighbors.  Since this is our first holiday in the new house, I wanted to do something nice for them.  I wanted to bake something with a festive ingredient and also something that was easy to package.  Chris and I sampled these blondies and were delighted to discover that they tasted like a pumpkin pie with eggnog.  So if you dig pumpkin pie, bake a batch of these blondies today!

Ingredients:

  • 3/4 cup of unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 3/4 cup of dark muscovado sugar
  • 1/2 cup of granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2/3 cup of pumpkin eggnog
  • 2 teaspoons of brandy (or vanilla extract if you prefer)
  • 3 cups of all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon of baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 cup of semisweet chocolate chips

Preparation:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.  Grease a 9″ x 13″-inch baking pan.

Using a stand mixer (or mix by hand) cream together butter, muscovado sugar and granulated sugar.  Add in eggs (one at a time), eggnog and brandy.

In a medium bowl whisk together flour, baking soda, salt and pumpkin pie spice.  Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing between additions.  Then stir in chocolate chips.

Scrape the batter into the greased pan.  Using your spatula, distribute your batter evenly around the pan.  Bake for 20-23 minutes or until toothpick/tester inserted into the center comes out clean.  Let the blondies cool in the pan on the cooling rack.

  1. When I came home from work last night and opened the door, the aroma of pumpkin pie, egg nog, spices and baked goods hit me like a giant sack of toys. This is the epitome of holiday food for me.

    • Yes, I usually use only organic granulated sugar or brown sugar in my baking. Or the muscovado sugar. None of that poison in my baked goods. 😉 Yes! my store, the last couple of years, have been carrying pumpkin eggnog –insane right? They even carry vanilla spice eggnog, organic eggnog, and even soy eggnog!

  2. These sound delicious! I’d never have thought to combine pumpkin and eggnog – I must try these asap.

    If you’re interested, I run a blogging challenge called Baking With Spirit, where bloggers enter relevant recipe posts and at the end of the month I post a round-up. It’s great for widening your audience. This month’s challenge is to add alcohol to any festive bake, and seeing a your blog is currently full of eggnogg recipes I thought this might be right up your street! Here’s the link: http://www.cakeoftheweek.net/2012/12/baking-with-spirit-december-challenge.html

    I hope you can take part!
