Pumpkin cheesecake brownies are a fall treat that you have to make. You can make these in less than an hour and they come from Betty Crocker. So you know they have to be a classic!
It was at a fall farmer’s market where I became inspired to make these pumpkin brownies. Everywhere I looked, I saw pumpkins. Big gourds, small gourds, decorative gourds. Gourds, gourds, gourds.
You know what they say, right? When handed a pumpkin, make pumpkin brownies. O.K., no one says that, but I am taking just a small amount of artistic license with the phrasing.
Our cottage is very comfortable, but I have to say our kitchen at the cottage is not as well equipped as our kitchen at home. Don’t get me wrong, it is very nice. Because of this, I knew that I wanted to make this as easy as possible.
Also, I did not want to spend my Saturday in the kitchen. Who does? I had a book calling my name. This recipe uses a standard boxed brownie mix and canned pumpkin. You really can’t get any easier than that.
What’s in them
Mix in a couple of eggs here, some cream cheese there, some vegetable oil and a couple of other standard ingredients, which everyone has in their pantry and voila the pumpkin brownie was born. Quick and easy and ever so delicious. A great treat for the fall, or for anytime you need your chocolate and pumpkin fix.
With dessert made, I leave you so that I can get to that book I’ve been trying to finish. Who am I kidding? I am going back to bed. -Scott
