What do you get when you mix a cake and cookie? A blondie!  Because of the all the pumpkin, these blondies turn out little more on the cakey side.  If you want a more dense and chewy texture, simply press them down after they are finished baking while they are still very warm.  They are loaded with vitamin A from the pumpkin and infused with warm fall flavors.  The aroma in the kitchen while they are baking is intoxicating and will fill your home with warm and fuzzy holiday happiness.  I did an easy chai “cheat” by using pumpkin pie spice and just adding cardamom and extra cinnamon.  Cardamom is great for digestion and is what gives the distinct chai flavor to these blondies.  Feel free to make your own chai spice using ginger, nutmeg, clove, allspice, etc…using the pumpkin pie spice covers most of what is in a chai blend so it simplifies the recipe.  You can easily cut this recipe in half and bake for about 20 minutes in a 9x9” pan.
