X Rated Pumpkin Squares

Okay, okay, my first pumpkin/chocolate recipe was the type of snack you take to work when it's your turn to bring the treats.

Sort of the classy, pin striped pant suit of pumpkin desserts.

Today's recipe is more like the thong.

These are the pumpkin/chocolate squares that Rhett would bake for Scarlet, Julius for Cleopatra, Robin for Maid Marion, Arthur for Guenevere...

And it is the dessert Antonio Banderas would bake for you, except that the recipe came from my cousin Chris and she forgot to send Antonio Banderas as an attachment, so I can't forward him on to you.

You'll have to imagine the chocolate, the satin sheets, the candles and the smouldering Spaniard feeding them to you.

(The squares not the candles.)

Luckily you can eat these goodies while you are leaning over the kitchen sink wearing your warmest jammies and they are still orgasmic.

Chris's X Rated Pumpkin Squares

2 cups spelt or whole wheat flour
1 tsp each: cinnamon, baking soda
3/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp each: ground nutmeg, ground cloves, ground ginger
1 cup unsalted butter at room temperature
1 - 1/3 cups granulated sugar
1 large egg
2 tsp pure vanilla extract
1 cup canned pure pumpkin
340 g (12 oz) semi-sweet chocolate chips

In a medium bowl whisk together flour, cinnamon, baking soda, salt, nutmeg, cloves and ginger.

In a large bowl, using the electric mixer on medium-high cream butter and sugar until smooth.
Beat in egg, vanilla and then pumpkin.
Reduce speed to low.

Add flour.

Stir in chocolate chips.

Spread batter into buttered and floured 9" by 13" baking pan.
Bake in 350 degree preheated oven until toothpick inserted in centre comes out with just a few moist crumbs and edges begin to pull away from the pan - about 35 to 40 minutes.

Cool completely before cutting.

I'm not sure if that last line, 'cool before cutting' refers to you or the dessert.

It depends on how you use the whipped cream, I guess.
