Recipe Type: Baking
Serves: 24 squares
Ingredients
  • 10 Tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 cup light brown sugar, firmly packed
  • ⅓ cup white (granulated) sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup pureed cooked pumpkin (canned is fine)
  • 1½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1½ teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ⅛ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • ⅛ teaspoon powdered ginger
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • about 1 cup sifted powdered (confectioner's) sugar, for rolling
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350. Grease and flour an 11x7-inch baking dish or brownie pan.
  2. Melt butter. While still warm, place in a medium mixing bowl, stir in sugars until dissolved, and let mixture cool till just slightly warm.
  3. Add egg, stirring well. Add pumpkin and stir until well-mixed.
  4. Add remaining ingredients except powdered sugar. Stir until well combined, then spread batter into prepared pan, smooshing down slightly with a rubber spatula to remove any air bubbles.
  5. Bake at 350 for 35 minutes, or until edges are just starting to crack and a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out with just a few crumbs attached.
  6. Cool on a wire rack for about 10 minutes. Cut into 1½" squares while still warm, and roll some or all of them in powdered sugar* (if the sugar doesn't stick you can smear it on with your fingers). Roll exactly half of your squares in sugar to create a checkerboard.
