Finding Thyme to Cook

Thyme is of the Essence

Blondies Have More Fun


Adapted from How To Cook Everything

I like chocolate and brownies, but I absolutely love the taste of vanilla, caramel, butterscotch so I love blondies.  This is an incredibly versatile recipe choosing your own additions, like nuts or dried cherries or butterscotch chips.  Of course, if you have to have your chocolate, you can even add chocolate chips to satisfy the craving.  These blondies are incredibly delicious and you only need one bowl and a hand held mixer.  This is such an easy recipe that I doubled it and did half with nuts and half without.

  • 8 tablespoons unsalted butter – melted
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 cup flour
  • Optional ingredients – chocolate chips, toasted nuts, dried cherries, butterscotch chips, peanut butter chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Grease a 8×8 baking dish

Beat butter and sugar until smooth.

Add eggs and vanilla and beat until well combined

Stir in flour and salt and mix well

Add optional ingredients

I doubled the recipe and added 1/2 cup each of  white chocolate chips and  bittersweet chips to the entire  batch

I then put half of the batter in one prepared pan

I added 1/2 cup toasted pecans to the remaining batter and put into the other prepared pan

Bake for 20-25 minutes

Cool and cut into squares

Some like nuts. . .

some don’t
