Pumpkin Brownies with White Chocolate Frosting

These are delicious! I found the recipe in one of my all time favorite cookbooks. My KitchenAid Best Love Recipes book. I have wanted to make these for a while, but kept putting it off for some reason or another. Oh, they are so yummy. It is a small batch, but they are very rich, so you don't need a huge piece.

Primo Pumpkin Brownies

3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup softened butter
1 tsp vanilla
1 egg
1 1/3 cup flour
1 cup canned pumpkin
2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1 tsp backing powder
1/4 tsp salt
2 heath bars crushed up. (my addition, since I couldn't find toffee baking bits)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease 8x8 baking dish. Beat sugar,butter, and vanilla in stand mixer. Beat until smooth. Add egg, beat until fluffy. Add rest of ingredients. Mix until combined. Spread into pan. Bake 45 min. Allow to cool completely.
