Recipe adapted from The Secret Recipe Blog
I have to admit that I feel like a terrible, imposter of a baker when I say that I have never had a blondie until now. I have been wanting to make these goodies for quite some time, and now I have the perfect excuse (a definite blogging bonus)! Whenever we eat at Applebee’s I always think about ordering this dessert because it looks so fantabulous (another blogging bonus, I can make up my own words!). I am usually too stuffed and feeling too guilty to order dessert, but now I can just make it on my own time.
For those of you who aren’t familiar with blondies, they are simply brownies, minus the chocolate. To some people this may not sound too appealing. Brownies are just so good, why would you want to take the chocolate out of them, right?
Wrong (well, sort of).
Yes brownies are delicious and a little piece of chocolate heaven, but these are just as good folks! This recipe comes with a maple butter sauce, which I decided to leave out on this round. Maybe it was my imagination, but I swore I could still taste a slight hint of maple in these bars. The brown sugar is what gives these their incredible flavor. The dough is incredibly easy, which always scores points with me. My one and only complaint is that they turned out a little thin. I think next time I will double the recipe to make thicker bars. Enjoy!
White Chocolate Chip Blondies
1/3 cup butter, melted
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup flour
½ tsp baking powder
1/8 tsp salt
1/8 tsp baking soda
½ cup white chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a medium size mixing bowl combine melted butter and brown sugar. Add in egg (beaten) and vanilla. In a separate bowl combine the flour, baking powder, salt, and baking soda. Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and mix well. Add chocolate chips. Spread dough in a greased 8 x 8 in pan. Bake 20-25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
For thicker bars double the ingredients.
