Meet Blondie: Cousin to the Brownie

Blondies! One of my favorite baked treats. Have you ever had them?  I first made them about 6 years ago when I was craving a certain something but couldn’t pin my finger on it.  After searching for recipes and inspiration, I found something called Blondies and they seem to be the thing I was needing.  Gave them a try and since then I’ve been hooked.  They’re like the cousin of brownies in terms of texture, but since no chocolate is added they bake into a nice caramel color. Why would you NOT add chocolate you ask??? I don’t know! But just try it! Trust me, they’re wonderful. They are fast and simple to make.  You can probably bake a batch and clean up in 45 minutes tops.  I love the texture of these blondies, soft, chewy, sweet…perfection.   They’re perfect when you’re craving something sweet from the oven.  I always add nuts to mine, preferably walnuts, but I had pecans at home and they were just as tasty.
