Shane's World Famous Blondies!

Since I'm not a big chocolate fan, I was VERY excited to come across Shane's Blondie Recipe. I think almost everyone at BakeSpace has made them at least once. Everyone LOVES these!! My kids ask me to make these a lot. My best sous chef Bob did most of work the last time we made them. They didn't even last 24 hours. If you bake no other bar cookie this year... you MUST bake these!

Shane's Blondies

3/4 C unsalted butter
1 1/2 C light brown sugar
1/2 C dark brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 large egg yolk
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
2 tsp baking powder
1 1/4 C AP flour
1 tsp kosher salt
1 C chopped pecans
1/4 C Heath Toffee Chips (optional)

Line a 13x9 pan with parchment.
Preheat oven to 350F
In a sauce pan, melt butter.
Stir in the brown sugars, stirring until 'melted' and the mixture just begins to bubble
Whisk eggs and yolks together with vanilla.
Pour in the eggs in a steady stream, while whisking constantly to prevent scrambling.
In a small bowl, whisk flour, baking powder and salt.
Fold flour mixture into the egg mixture.
Fold in pecans and toffee chips (if using)
Bake 35-40 minutes (5 minutes less for dark pans)
Remove from oven and cool on a rack.
Lift via parchment and cut when cooled.

I never have dark brown sugar... so I use 2 cups of light brown sugar and add 1.5 teaspoons of molasses.

Those are some of the best looking brownies I've seen yet. I will try these...

Michele said...

Sprtye - You're absolutly right! I think we all tried them! I've made them twice already. I have to admit I used 1/2 cup of choc chips bc Steve said he wouldn't eat them without it and they melted and swirled. It was perfect not a brownie but a chocolate blondie. hee hee. I know, you don't like chocoalte. Crazy girl! LOL xoxo

Wow! How have I managed to miss this post for nearly a week? As much as I love chocolate, I've always been partial to blondies. This recipe is a keeper!

Sophie said...
