Pumpkin "Brownies"

Pumpkin “Brownies”

We had a lot of fun playing around with this recipe.  It came about because we had a request for a pumpkin brownie without chocolate.  Always up for a challenge, we got to work testing (and tasting) and this was our winning recipe.

The use of basil was inspired by our experimentations with other herbs such as rosemary, and led to further explorations using fennel seeds and other spices. Yield: about 1 quart Ingredients:...
