Pumpkin Brownies

I love fall. I love sweaters and corduroy and everything pumpkin. I was googling a couple days ago for new pumpkin desserts when I ran accross a recipe on the Dr Oz Show website for pumpkin brownies. It sounded delicious and interesting so I thought I would give it a try. The best part is it only has 4 ingredients.

Here's all you need:
1 (15 oz) can prepared pumpkin
2 tsp lemon zest
1 box of brownie mix
3 tbsp peanut butter, softened in microwave
What to do with these ingredients:
 - Preheat oven to 350 degrees
 - Grease an 8x8 baking pan
 - In a large bowl, stir together the pumpkin puree and lemon zest
 - Mix in the brownie mix - just the box mix, no eggs or oil - and combine well. It will be a thick batter. Spread the batter evenly into the baking pan. Put the peanut butter in the microwave for about 30 seconds to soften it. Top the batter in the pan with dollops of peanut butter. You can draw a knife through the dough and peanut butter to create a design. Bake for 25 - 30 minutes. Let cool before cutting.
