Pumpkin Brownies

Last week I was craving all things pumpkin, but I didn't want to go through the trouble of making a crust and baking a whole pie. I wanted an instant pumpkin fix. So, I searched the pantry and found a box of brownie mix. Mmmm.... rich chocolate, spicy pumpkin - this could be a match made in heaven. And, did I mention easy? This recipe comes together in no time, no baking skills needed.

Start with brownie mix, add pumpkin --  create fall euphoria.

Here's what you'll need:

Brownie mix, prepared according to package instructions and poured into greased baking sheet (do not bake yet)
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 tsp Cinnamon
1/4 tsp Ground Ginger
1/8 tsp Ground Cloves
pinch salt
1 cup pumpkin puree, like Libby's
1 egg, beaten
1/2 cup evaporated milk

1. Combine sugar, cinnamon, ginger, cloves and salt in a small bowl.

2. Mix in 1 cup of Libby's pumpkin puree. 

3. Now stir in the beaten egg.

4. Mix in the evaporated milk.

5. Pour dollops of the pumpkin on top of the unbaked brownie mix and spread evenly. 

Bake the brownies at 350 degrees for the time specified on the box. 
It took my brownies 50 minutes to bake. Just poke a toothpick into the center to be sure that the pumpkin has baked through, the toothpick should come out clean.
When cooled, cut into squares and serve. 
Store in the fridge.
