My New Favorite Blondie

After the salt-free peanut-butter cookie mishap, I felt that I needed to give The Greyston Bakery Cookbook one more chance. I decided to give The Great Blondie a try.

Years ago, I had a favorite blondie recipe, from Completely Cookies by Leslie Weiner and the late Barbara Albright. I made it so often that I ended up memorizing the recipe. I dabbled with other blondie recipes. I love Caprial Pence's, from Caprial's Desserts, but it's a fancy blondie, not an everyday blondie. The Great Blondie from Greyston is everyday, easy to make, and very tasty. I made one batch for PLTI this week, then made another to bring this weekend on my trip to Cincinnati for the Flying Pig Marathon. The published recipe calls for a mix of semisweet and butterscotch chips, but I used semisweet chips and a cup of multicolored mini-M&Ms.

Dang, I love blondies, and can't remember when I had one last. You might make me get out the mixer this weekend... Good luck at the race!

Like Dave, I love blondies also. Is this the recipe that you sent to me? Update: I never got to try ANY of the batch that was made for Cassidy's birthday party at school. :_( However, I did make a batch last night for a block party that we're having today. I mixed in some dried cherries and had a little heavy hand on the walnuts (I like the brownies and blondies with crunch and chew.) This recipe rocks. So much so that I am going to make another batch this morning for the party. Starts at 2:00. Bring your scooters and be ready for lots of summer fun. :^p
