Blondies

Looking for an easy and delicious alternative to the chocolate chip cookie and brownie. Look no further. I have tried many a “blondie” recipe, and this one leaves the all in the dust!

Blondies

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1/2 cup ( 1 stick) unsalted butter or margarine
  • 1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
  • Other add-in options: walnuts, pecans, coconut or heath bits. 

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 ℉. Line a 9X9 inch baking pan with parchment paper and lightly grease, then set aside.

In a medium bowl, whisk the flour, baking powder and sea salt. Set aside.

Place the butter or margarine into a large pot over low heat. Gently melt it. Remove from heat and, using a wooden spoon, mix in the light brown sugar and stir until mixed well and the sugar is melted. Cool for 5 minutes. Quickly whisk in the egg. Add vanilla and whisk again. With the wooden spoon, slowly add the flour mixture, stirring to incorporate. Mix the chocolate chips or any other add-ins, such as nuts, heath bits or coconut.

Scrape the batter into the  prepared pan, using a small spatula to smooth it evenly into the corners. Level the top. Bake for 25-30 minutes.

Cool completely before cutting into bars. Don’t over bake or the blondies will lose their signature chewiness!
