Basic Blondies | bites out of life
Recipe from Smitten Kitchen
- 8 tablespoons (1 stick) butter, melted
- 1 cup dark brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 large egg
- a pinch of salt
- 1 cup of all-purpose flour
- 1 cup semisweet chocolate
- 3/4 cup chopped walnuts
1) Preheat the oven to 350°F.
Butter and flour an 8-x-8
baking pan.
2) Mix the melted butter and sugar together in a large bowl until smooth. Beat in the egg
and the vanilla. Stir in the salt, flour, chocolate chips and walnuts (or whatever mix-ins
you decide to use).
3) Pour the batter into the prepared pan. Bake for 20-25 minutes, until the top is lightly
browned and the center is still slightly gooey. (Yes, that’s the official term.)
Note: You could add anything (literally anything) in this blondies — chopped pecans or
hazelnuts instead of walnuts, any other kind of chocolate chip (or butterscotch or toffee),
a tablespoon or two of peanut butter, toasted coconut flakes (if you’re into that kind of
stuff), chopped dried cherries or cranberries … I could go on, but instead I’ll eat another
