Anne's Pumpkin Squares
From Anne Wallin, adapted from a Martha Stewart recipe
Recipe type: Dessert
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt (if using un-salted butter, ¾ tsp)
  • 1 cup butter
  • 1¼ cups sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1½ cup pumpkin puree (sometimes Anne adds more, but no more than 2 cups)
  • Bittersweet chocolate chips (about 1 or 2 cups, depending on how much you like chocolate)
  1. Whisk flour, cinnamon, soda and salt together and set aside. Cream butter and sugar in mixer until well-mixed. Beat in egg. Add vanilla, mix. Beat in pumpkin puree so it looks lumpy and sort of curdled. Mix in dry ingredients until just combined. Fold in chocolate chips.
  2. Spread in 9×13 pan and bake at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes – the edges will pull away from the side and the toothpick should come out clean (with maybe a crumb or too on the toothpick).
