Pumpkin Spice Brownies
½ cup Southern Okie Gourmet Pumpkin Spread
4 ounces cream cheese, softened
2 (8-ounce) packages Shawnee Mills Rich Fudge Brownie Mix
¼ cup vegetable oil
2 tablespoons Dairy Pure whole milk
Heat oven to 350 degrees (or 325 degrees for dark or nonstick pan). Grease bottom of 9-inch square pan.
In a small bowl, beat all filling ingredients with electric mixer on low speed for 30 seconds and medium speed for about 2 minutes, until smooth. Set aside.
