Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and lightly flour a 9x9x2-inch baking pan. Set aside.

In a large bowl, combine vegetable oil spread, brown sugar, baking soda, and pumpkin pie spice; beat with an electric mixer on medium speed until well mixed. Beat in pumpkin and egg. Beat in as much of the flour as you can with the mixer. Using a wooden spoon, stir in any remaining flour.
3.
Spread dough into prepared pan. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool in pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Remove from pan; cool completely on a wire rack.
