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.
