After months of trying to decide to start a blog I finally made decision, so here I am!
So today was a “lazy” day for me, which is nice once in awhile. The time change has me off schedule, so I’m up at 4:30. I started my day with Pumpkin Spice Coffee (thank you mom for letting me have your creamer 😉 love ya), and started feeling in a Fall mood. What screams Fall to me, Pumpkins and Sweet Potatoes. Plus, Logan loves both so I cannot go wrong.
In between keeping my little Pumpkin happy and working on my never ending mound of homework, I made these beauties! Doug had hinted yesterday he was in a chocolate chip mood, so I decided to make us both happy. The result was AMAZING! Cake like in texture and so moist!
I knew once Logan got a hold of these I would never be able to give him anything else, the kid just loves pumpkin, and I was not wrong. This is one thing he defiantly gets from me! As I was cutting them, I gave him a taste. The result was “cookie” “cookie,” and even though he already had a cookie I will give him one of these with ice cream for his dessert.
Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Pie Bars
2 c. All-Purpose Flour
1 Tblsp. Pumpkin Pie Spice
1/2 tsp. Salt
2 sticks Unsalted Butter
1 c. Granulated Sugar
1/4 c. Brown Sugar
2 tsp. Vanilla
1 c.Homemade Pumpkin Puree (or Canned)
12 ounce Semisweet Chocolate Chips
-Preheat oven 350 degrees and grease a 9×13 baking pan.
-Combine flour, spice, soda, and salt in a bowl.
-In another bowl (or mixer) cream butter and sugar. Add egg and vanilla until smooth. Add pumpkin puree.
-Slowly add the wet and dry ingredients together, then stir in chocolate chips.
-Bake 35-40 minutes, until edges and top is slightly brown. Cool completely before cutting.
After the baking I began thinking about the Sweet Potato in the pantry. I decided to making cinnamon mashed sweet potatoes to go with Logan’s dinner, and the leftovers I will use in my morning oatmeal.
Well, I guess I should start preparing thing for dinner, and finish my homework.
