Tuesday Cook Off ~ Chocolate Chip Blondies

Tuesday Cook Off ~ Chocolate Chip Blondies

Today on Tuesday Cook Off I am featuring a Chocolate Chip Blondies.   If you are a chocolate chip fan and want a new twist, the blondie is a winner.   What is a blondie? Blondies are the lighter colored counterpart to brownies. They’re dense, chewy bar cookies that have a fudgy texture similar to that of a brownie.  In other words, it’s delicious!

I really enjoyed this recipe and it made a small batch, which I like because then the blondies stay fresh.  I was very surprised that my husband really enjoyed the blondies.   He is not much of a dessert person and would much rather have one of my homemade pretzels or cinnamon rolls.  But to my surprise he really enjoyed them and already asked for me to make them again soon.

Chocolate Chip Blondies

Recipe Yields 12 Blondies

Ingredients

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 8 tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter
  • 1 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup milk chocolate chips
  • 3/4 cup chopped walnuts (optional)

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Mist a 12-cup muffin tin with nonstick cooking spray or line with paper muffin cups. In a small bowl, mix flour, baking powder and salt; stir with a fork to combine.
  2. Melt butter in a medium saucepan over low heat. Remove from heat and stir in brown sugar. Let cool slightly, then stir in egg and vanilla until smooth. Stir in flour mixture, then chocolate chips and nuts, if using.
  3. Portion out a little less than 1/4 cup batter into each muffin cup and smooth tops with a small spatula. Bake until just set, 15 to 17 minutes. Let blondies cool completely on a wire rack before removing from pan.
