Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Squares

Fall is fully underway y'all and this Mama was READY! It's my favorite season of the year. Not only because my birthday is in 2 weeks, but because I LOVE cool weather, and piles of beautiful leaves, and getting to bake all things PUMPKIN! I've been working on putting up some seasonal decor around the house and baking away! Here's my new favorite treat...

What you need...

Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Squares                                                                                                      Martha Stewart
2 cups flour
1 tbsp pumpkin pie spice
1 tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp salt
2 sticks butter {at room temp}
1 1/4 cups sugar
1 egg
2 tsp vanilla
1 cup pumpkin puree
12oz semisweet chocolate chips

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees

Grab a 9x13in pan and line it with foil, so that there are overlapping "flaps" on each side... trust me-this is so helpful!

In a  medium bowl, mix together the flour, pumpkin pie spice, baking soda and salt.

Then grab your mixer and beat the butter, and sugar until smooth. Add the egg and vanilla and mix again. Then add the pumpkin puree... but don't worry if it looks kind of curdled... it's supposed to be that way!

Slowly add the dry ingredients to the mixer and stir in the chocolate chips. Bake for 35 minutes. Let it cool completely in the pan, and then use the foil to lift them out. Cut into squares and store in an air-tight container until you serve them.

They are moist, and chewy, and so delicious! They will disappear quickly, so grab one quick and maybe a Pumpkin Spice Latte too? Have a great week!
