How to make pumpkin brownies.
- Preheat the oven to 350 F Degrees. And pre-spray a baking dish with Pam and set to the side.
- Make the brownies according to the directions on your brownie box, plus add 1 egg yolk. Pour it into a prepared baking dish and set it to the side.
- In a separate bowl mix together softened cream cheese and sugar.
- Add the pumpkin puree, spices and flour (mix it together).
- Dollop the pumpkin mixture onto the brownie mixture (that has been poured in to the baking dish).
- Swirl through the mixture with a butter knife.
- Top with the chop nuts. (This step may be left out if you can’t eat nuts)
- Swirl it through the mixture, incorporating the nuts.
- Bake until the center is done. Bake it about 30-40 minutes.
- Cool the brownies completely before slicing them! After cooling you can chill the pan to get a cleaner sliced brownie cut.
Additional Notes: Baking and cooling times may vary slightly. Test your brownies with a toothpick before you get to the end of the bake time. Let the brownies cool on the counter (on a trivet) prior to adding them to finish cooling in the fridge before cutting.
