CHOCOLATE CHIP BLONDIES
These scrumptious little bars are almost cake-like in texture, not quite as rich/buttery as other blondes I make. But they are oh so good!
8 TBSP unsalted butter, melted, plus more for pan
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup flour
1 tsp salt
1 cup semisweet chocolate morsels
1 cup chopped walnuts
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Brush an 8-inch square baking pan with butter; line pan with a piece of parchment paper (or tin foil), leaving a 2-inch overhang on two sides. Butter paper.
In a large bowl, mix butter and sugars until smooth.
Whisk in egg and vanilla.
Add flour and salt; mix just until moistened (do not overmix).
Fold in 1/2 cup each chocolate chips and walnuts. Transfer batter to prepared pan; smooth top. Sprinkle with remaining chocolate chips and walnuts.
Bake until top is golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 30-40 minutes.
Set pan on a wire rack, and let cool completely. Using parchment overhang, lift blondies from pan, and transfer to a cutting board; cut into 16 squares. And no fair counting the squares below – I can’t imagine why there are only 15… 😉
Store blondies in an airtight container at room temperature, up to 2 days (or freeze).
