Cortney has been making cream cheese blondies for ages, in addition to they are super yummy. So when she said she wanted to campaign a pumpkin version, I was totally psyched!

The exclusively solution was to brand my ain batch in addition to thence I could accept pictures. They turned out in addition to thence good! Definitely a novel household unit of measurement favorite!
