Blondies, as opposed to brownies, is a dense gooey slice/cake...with nuts, chocolate or both in this instance. You’ll go nuts for it! You can add berries, any nuts of choice and possibly dark or milk chocolate chips if you really want to go all out. This is a very old recipe, I had to convert it from cup measures...that is how old it is! We loved having to make it again. If you have not yet discovered the wonders of brown butter, then really, you have been missing something. Be careful not to go overboard, as it can go from fragrant and nutty to black and charred tasting in literally seconds. Watch the butter as you go through the process. SO...with that said my lovelies, you are set to go....have a blondie moment, you won’t regret it! Happy Mixing.
