While I liked these, I wouldn't call them a blondie. I think of a blondie as being rich & buttery; soft, but chewy. This is more like a sponge cake with that same type of cream cheese filling in danishes, but with pumpkin added. That isn't to say it's bad. It's more cakelike than I expected is all. I used my blend of pumpkin pie spice' 1/2t cinnamon, 1/4t ginger, 1/8t nutmeg. A little 411: If you use your mix, use the same amount as you would for a pie. I tried half, tasted, & then added the same amount again - which equalled a pie amount. I like my pumpkin pie more pumpkintasting than spicetasting so the amounts probably appear low, if you prefer spicier. A reviewer mentioned the pumpkin part not being sweet - no sugar added there - so I went with 1 1/3c sugar in the cake & 1/3c in the cream cheese/pumpkin part. I didn't add any chips on top. Pretty dessert & love the no cleanup!
