    These are SO good and super easy to make. The only change I made was to omit the frosting and add a streusel topping instead. 3 T each granulated sugar and flour, 1/2 tsp cinnamon and 2 T room temp butter. Then I drizzled with caramel sauce when they were cooled off.

    I had to say these pumpkin spice blondies are great, they baked up perfectly in 25 minutes, very soft and moist not to mention the buttery crust edges which I like. I did not add in any nuts but added the baking chips. My only thing is next time I will add three teaspoons of pumpkin pie spice, but that is my preference. Overall great recipe a keeper! The house smelled wonderful like the fall season.
