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
