I’ve been making Blondies forever. They’re delicious! Sort of a cookie, sort
of a brownie – minus the cocoa powder.
Line an 8 inch square baking pan with foil or parchment paper. If using foil, spray lightly with a cooking/baking spray such as Pam. Set aside.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a medium sized bowl whisk the following ‘dry’ ingredients together,
then set aside:
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
In a larger bowl combine the following ingredients together until creamy:
½ cup of butter or margarine
½ cup of dark brown sugar
½ cup granulated white sugar
1 teaspoon of vanilla
Now add your dry ingredient (flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt) to the creamed ingredients. Mix completely - until the batter pulls away from the sides of the bowl. This is to make sure the flour and butter combine thoroughly and don’t separate while baking.
Now stir in: 1/2 cup of chocolate chips (I like a combination of dark chocolate and semi-sweet chocolate) and ½ cup of butterscotch chips. I also add 1/2 cup of chopped pecans. If you don’t like nuts, this is optional.
Spread Blondie batter evenly in your prepared 8 inch square pan. Bake for 25-30 minutes – or until golden brown. Cool in the pan. Enjoy!
***** For a decadent treat, top warm Blondies with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, whipped cream and a drizzle of hot fudge! *****
