Oh Dear Reader–brace yourself.
If you are anything like me, this recipe is about to rock your world…
Ya see when Gooseberry Patch sent little ole me their “Coming Soon” 101 Cupcake,Cookie and Brownie Recipes Cookbook, this brunette was instantly drawn to The Best Blondie recipe… instantly.
(Psst… If you want to win this awesome book BEFORE you can buy it, I am giving one away )
I heart blondies wayyy more than brownies…just sayin’
And, dear reader– these truly are the BEST I have ever had.
It might have something to do with the fact that ya start with two sticks of butter…
That and two cups of brown sugar
Now mix’er up until smooth.
Beat in two eggs–sans shells
With two teaspoons vanilla
Mix in two cups flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder–note my laziness… I used my teaspoon–gasp– and just filled it half way.
Well and then with the salt, I just grabbed some… it was late. It should have been 1/4 teaspoon.
Now the fun part. 1 Cup chopped pecans
And lookie there…1 Cup of Ghirardelli White Chocolate Chips that ACTUALLY made it to a recipe…BEFORE I consumed them…
I have a problem.
Admitting it is the first step.
The first and only step I am willing to make at this point…just sayin’
And 3/4 Cup Toffee Bits… Yum!!!
Now, line the bottom of a 9 x13 pan with parchment… which will turn out to be very handy if you happen to burn the tar out of your first batch…not that I know about these sorts of things…
Grease/Spray the inside edges of your pan as well… also making burn removal easier…
Now spread in your pan and bake at 375 degrees for 30-40 minutes….or 25 if you are using my new oven and don’t know what you are doing and not really paying attention to boot.
See if you go about baking and forget to check… this may or may not happen.
I was bummed.
But then I realized I hadn’t used my brownie pan that I was wanting to try and all of a sudden this smokey cloud had a silver lining!
It’s the little things–really.
Spritz the inside of your pan with oil.
Repeat all those steps above–sans the burning part…
Fill up the cavities with the mixture that might just give you cavities…ha!
Now pop ‘er in the oven and PAY ATTENTION this time dag-gone-it!
Pop out and give ‘er a cool down on a cooling rack.
Ooeey Gooey Awesomeness…
