In a medium saucepan, melt the butter. Stir in sugar and transfer to a large bowl and allow to cool.

In a medium bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, ground cloves, and salt.

When the butter mixture has cooled whisk in the eggs one at a time until the mixture lightens a bit.

Stir in the pumpkin puree.

Fold in the flour mixture until just combined.

Fold in the dark chocolate chips, white chocolate chips, and crystalized ginger.

Spread the batter into the prepared 9 x 13 pan and bake for 40-50 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Allow to cool in the pan placed on a wire rack. When cool use the parchment paper overhang to lift the blondies out of the pan.

Remove the parchment paper and cut into individual blondies.
