These fudgy pumpkin bars, with the flavor of warm spice, are a taste of fall in blondie form. Topped with a cheesecake flavored glaze and chopped pecans, every bite is a mouthful of deliciousness.

This post is sponsored by Amoretti. All opinions and ideas expressed are my own.

Something about the cool weather and the shorter daylight hours makes me want to crank up the oven and pull piping hot goodness out of it. I have been baking a lot—cookies, pies, calzones, and these blondies. The aroma that waft throughout the house is intoxicating and comforting. 

One thing for sure, my husband and son have no complaints about my baking activity. They enjoy being on the receiving end of what comes out of the oven. And when there is more food than any three people can possibly eat, the excess is offloaded to our next door neighbors. Thanks Al and Linda for accepting my "gifts"!

Pumpkin Blondies with Cheesecake Glaze

These blondies were created with the help of Amoretti products, which makes all your baked goods simply fantastic. The Pumpkin Spice Cookie Spread sounded so good, I had to try it! This creamy spread is the secret ingredient that gives these blondies a comforting warm fall flavor. For the glaze, Natural Cheesecake Plain Extract makes it simply delicious! No need to use cream cheese as the extract provides all the flavor. I'm so excited to use other spreads and even chocolate dusting powder I got from them!

Amoretti offers an extensive line of merchandise encompassing an array of pastry, savory, and craft beverage ingredients. What impresses me most is the quality of their products. The majority of them are all natural and free of preservatives. Now who doesn't love that?

Pumpkin Blondies with Cheesecake Glaze


2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon baking soda
10 tablespoons butter, cubed
1/3 cup white chocolate chips
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 1/4 cup lightly packed dark brown sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2/3 cup Pumpkin Spice Cookie Spread 

For the glaze:
1 cup powdered sugar
4 teaspoons milk or cream
1/8 scant teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoon Natural Cheesecake Plain Extract 
heaping 1/4 cup chopped pecans


Preheat oven to 350° F. Spray a 9"x13" baking pan with cooking spray, or line with parchment paper.

Place butter and white chocolate in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave at 20 second intervals at 50% power. Stir. Continue to microwave and stir for three more cycles. The butter should be melted by the fourth cycle. Stir the remaining bits of chocolate until melted. 

In a medium bowl, combine flour, salt, and baking powder. Set aside.

Place sugars in a large mixing bowl. Whisk to obtain sand-like consistency. Whisk in melted butter mixture. Add eggs and vanilla extract. Whisk until smooth. Add 1/3 of the flour mixture. Blend until half of the flour is incorporated. Add half of the pumpkin spread, then blend. It does not have to be entirely incorporated. Repeat adding and roughly blending the flour and pumpkin spread. End with the last 1/3 of the flour. Stir until all the flour is incorporated. The batter will be thick.

Scoop the batter into the prepared baking pan. Spread evenly. Bake blondies for 25-30 minutes or until the edges are golden but the center appears slightly moist. For fudgy brownies, err on the side of underdone. Cool completely.

For the glaze, whisk powdered sugar, salt, and almost all of the milk in a medium size bowl. Add cheesecake extract. Whisk until smooth and pourable. Add the remaining milk if the glaze is too thick.

Spread glaze over the top of cooled blondies. Sprinkle with pecans. Allow glaze to set before cutting.

Makes 12 servings.

Recipe Note:

  • Microwave instructions are based on 1100V microwave ovens. The number of cycles the butter and white chocolate need to melt may vary depending on the voltage of your microwave. Increase or decrease as necessary.

My son has been into feta lately. It has come to the point where I shouldn't bother to ask what kind of cheese he prefers, because I already know the answer.

"What do you want on your pizza?" "Feta."

"What cheese should I use in your calzone?" "Feta."

"What should I put in your quesadilla?" "Feta."

This green bean recipe might look familiar to some of you as it was featured on one of my earliest posts. I thought it could use updated pictures as well as a reintroduction to all of you lovely visitors of this blog. It is unarguably one of the easiest and most delicious green bean side dishes to make. As you can see, I am not partial at all ;)

If you have a picky, protein-driven eater in your household as I do, this pie is worth its weight in gold. In my family, the distinction goes to the hubs. He can live on meat and cheese alone. With only a few exceptions, he will pass on anything that has vegetables. And don't even get me going on pasta! Can someone else tell the man there is more to the pasta world than spaghetti, pene, or orecchiette and red sauce? #notthisagain

One of my sisters came to visit for a week in August. My family went through Dunkin' Donuts drive through almost every day to grab breakfast before we went on our daily road trip. Even though I usually have just a cup of decaf in the morning, the smell of all the food in the car was so good, I had to order something too. I lived on sausage, egg, and cheese breakfast wraps that week. It was so simple but so good!
