I never was really a blondie person before. They tasted a little too...blah to me.

Until we found the best recipe in the world. 

I had no idea that blondies are actually supposed to taste like a chocolate chip cookie with the texture of moist brownies. Like these do.

Make these.

Your life will be forever changed. I promise you.

(Adapted from this recipe...but use my version. Unless you want to die of too much salt and overdone blondies...I always double this recipe. I also omitted the walnuts, but feel free to add them.)

The Perfect Blondies


  • - 8 tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted
  • - 1/2 cup packed light-brown sugar
  • - 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • - 1 large egg
  • - 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • - 1 cup bread flour (spooned and leveled)
  • - 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • - 1 cup chocolate chips


- Preheat oven to 350 degrees; butter 8 inch square baking pan

- In a large bowl, whisk together sugars and butter until smooth. Whisk in egg and vanilla. Add flour and salt, and mix until just moistened (be sure not to overmix). Fold in 1/2 cup chocolate chips. Transfer batter to pan and smooth top. Sprinkle remaining chocolate chips

- Bake until golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 25-30 minutes.

- Eat the entire pan a (few) delicious squares.
