Yes, I am blond
and I love me some Blondies!
These little bars are so very good.
Butterscotch chips are usually used in blondies, this recipe uses White chocolate chips.
I think it gives the blondies a deeper and richer flavor and really brings out the brown sugar from the cookie base.
These are so very easy to make, hand mixes up in 10 minutes bakes in 25.
A great recipe to have your little kiddos help you with, if you choose.
Don't forget to eat these with a glass of cold milk, YUMMY!

makes 24 in a 13 by 9 baking pan

What You Need:
-1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
-1 teaspoon salt
-1 teaspoon Baking Powder
-12 Tablespoons (1 1/2 sticks) unsalted butter, melted and cooled
-1 1/2 cups packed light brown sugar
-2 large eggs
-4 teaspoons vanilla extract
-1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
-1/2 cup white chocolate chips
-1/2 cup chopped pecans (optional)

How to make:
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a 13 by 9 inch baking pan with foil or Parchment paper, and then grease the foil or parchment paper with Pam spray.

2. In a medium bowl whisk the flour, baking powder, and salt together.

3. In a large bowl, whisk the butter and brown sugar together. Whisk in the eggs and vanilla until combined. Stir in the flour mixture until just incorporated. Stir in the chips and nuts.

4. Scrape the batter into the prepared pan and smooth the top. Bake the blondies until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out with just a few moist crumbs attached, 22-25 minutes.

5. Let the Blondies cool completely in the pan for about 2 hours. Remove the blondies from the pan, cut into squares and Enjoy!
