  • 1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
  • 2 cups firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1 cup solid pack pumpkin
  • 2 eggs, slightly beaten
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 1/2 cups quick or old-fashioned oats, uncooked
  • 1/2 cup semisweet real chocolate morsels
  • 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 2 cups butterscotch flavored morsels


  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In large bowl, cream butter and sugar; add pumpkin, eggs and vanilla extract.
  3. Stir in flour, oats, spice, baking powder, baking soda, salt and walnuts.
  4. Spread batter into greased and floured 15 x 10-inch jellyroll pan or 2 (8-inch) square baking pans.
  5. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes (30 to 35 minutes for 8-inch pans).
  6. Immediately sprinkle butterscotch morsels on brownies; let stand 5 minutes.
  7. To frost, gently spread morsels to cover brownies.
  8. In small saucepan, melt chocolate chips over low heat. Drizzle over frosted brownies in a spiral design. While still warm, lightly drag the edge of a knife or thin metal spatula from the center of the spiral to the edge of the pan. Repeat motion at spaced intervals to make a spider web pattern.
  9. Cool completely before slicing.
