Pumpkin Blondies

I should have created a series of recipes entitled
  "MY PUMPKIN SPICED FOOD OBSESSION"...
here is another recipe to add to my list!
Pumpkin Blondies
2 c. all purpose flour
1 Tbsp. pumpkin pie spice
1 tsp. baking soda
3/4 tsp. salt
1 c. butter, softened
1/2 c. brown sugar
3/4 c. sugar
1 large egg
2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 -(15 oz.) can pumpkin puree
1 c. white chocolate chips 
( I use semi-sweet chocolate chips instead)
1 c. butterscotch chips
1/2 c. pecans, toasted and chopped (optional)

Preheat oven to 350 degree's.  Spray a 9 x 13 baking dish with non-stick spray. 
In a medium bowl, combine the flour, spice, baking soda & salt.  Stir together and set aside.
In your electric mixer with the paddle attachment, beat together the butter and sugars on medium-high speed until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg and vanilla until well combined. Mix in the pumpkin, then with the mixer on low speed add the dry ingredients and mix just until incorporated.  Fold in the chips and nuts.
Spread the batter evenly into the prepared pan. Bake 35-40 minutes or until the edges begin to pull away from the sides and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool completely on wire rack, then cut into squares.
