Step 7 – Bake the Pumpkin Blondies

Bake the blondies for 35 to 40 minutes. To test for doneness, you should stick a toothpick into the center. You don’t want to overbake these, so when only a few crumbs cling to the toothpick, pull the pan out of the oven and let it cool on the counter for about 30 to 45 minutes before cutting into squares.
