Blondies are a nice change to a regular brownie.

You can decide what to add to this Blondie recipe. Chocolate chips, white chocolate chips, coconut, raisins, pecans, walnuts, macadamia nuts...

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 35 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar, dark or light
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup chocolate or white chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup pecan pieces, lightly toasted

Preparation:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease 8x8 baking pan. In a large bowl, mix together butter and brown sugar. Set aside. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Set aside. To brown sugar mixture, whisk in egg and vanilla. Mix in flour mixture and stir until completely combined. Stir in chips and nuts. Pour batter into pan. Bake for 20 or more minutes. Cool completely on wire rack. Cut into 6, 9 or 16 pieces.

Notes in the Margin:
If you want an all-blonde Blondie, use the white chocolate chips with macadamia nuts. Personally, I like them best with 1 full cup of lighty toasted pecan pieces and no chips.

OMG!, Member allie0723

Ohhhh, this stuff is heavenly! I made a double recipe, put it in a 9 x 13 pan, and baked it for 30 minutes. Another twist I added was making a drizzle to go on the top. It makes it taste like Applebee's ""blondie"". Take 1 can of cream cheese icing and mix in some maple syrup and a dash of vanilla. PERFECTO!
