TWD::Chewy, Chunky Blondies


This week our Tuesdays With Dorie recipe was chosen by Nicole of Cookies on Friday.  Nicole, I have to say, BRAVO!  This was a HIT all around!  It was so good I was afraid to leave the whole batch at home for my me my husband and two small children to eat all alone so took all the leftovers to work.  Now I work in an office full of men who didn't shy away from gobbling up every last crumb, either.  I swear you could hear their "mmmmm" motors running with each bite.  These Blondies are THAT good!

I did make a few changes. I added the 1 c. of semisweet chocolate chips, but instead of 1c. of butterscotch chips, I changed it to 3/4 c. and 1/4 c. bittersweet chocolate chips.  I always find the butterscotch chips WAY too sweet for my liking.  I also swapped out the walnuts for toasted almonds.  YUM!  I've said it before and I'll say it again.  Toasted Almonds are the BEST!!!!  I also had to cook mine for about 20 min longer than the 40 minutes that Dorie suggests.  My oven is new and perfectly calibrated, but this just didn't bake up in the first 40.  So mine looks a little extra golden and crispy.  Delicious just the same!!!

  2. Your blondies do look absolutely perfect. These are in that dangerous category for me.

  3. I could eat more than a few...all by myself..yummy.

  4. I loved these blondies too. I made mine with chocolate chips, butterscotch chips and coconut, and it was just about perfect.
