How do you make blondies?
Blondies are made in a similar fashion as brownies. Except, instead of chocolate you are going to use a mix of sugars. It's the brown sugar that gives blondies that sweet, chewy texture.
Beat the butter and sugar until light and fluffy, then add the eggs and vanilla extract. In a separate bowl you'll combine the dry ingredients, a simple mixture of flour, baking soda and salt. Beat the mixture until combined and then mix in your walnuts and butterscotch chips. Then pour your batter into the prepared pan and bake.
What is the secret to chewy blondies?
The secret to a chewy blondie is to use the right amount of brown sugar. The molasses in the brown sugar provides the "chew" and also not to add too much flour. The recipe below will provide the best ratios for each.
What pan should I use to bake blondies?
The real game changer for making blondies with tight corners and clean edges is a removable bottom brownie tin. It will give you the best corners and clean cuts for equal sized squares. But really any 9 x 9 brownie pan will work. (this link goes to Amazon where I am compensated on products sold at no additional cost to the consumer)
Who knew such a contraption existed?! I actually think it's probably a cake pan, but it really works well for any type of bars too! Hey multi-purpose bakeware is what I'm all about 🙂
Can you make blondies ahead of time?
If you make these blondies a few hours ahead or even a day ahead, the texture gets even chewier and better!
