Feature: Blonde Brownies Recipe – the Classic Brownies Variation

This Blonde Brownies Recipe is a variation of traditional chocolate brownies, but has become a classic in its own right.

Both blondies and brownies are cake-like bar cookies, which are cut into individual pieces and are eaten with your fingers.

Yet while brownies call upon cocoa or melted chocolate for flavoring – and a corresponding dark coloring – blondies are flavored with brown sugar and vanilla, tinted in a matching golden brown. The result is a rich cookie with a dense texture.

Plus, they are simple. The bars call for just 7 ingredients – 8 if you sprinkle toppings on the surface.

Prep time: 10 minutes
Bake time: 25-30 minutes
Makes about 3 – 3 ½ dozen cookies
