And they look and smell so good!!! Is there anything better than smelling something sweet baking on a cool night, or any night for that matter? My answer to that is no! I love baking stuff and I love the smell of my house during and right after baking.
I think blondies are one of my new favorite dessert items. They are so simple to cook, there's not a lot to them and they taste wonderful. It's been a long time since I've had blondies, my parents used to cook them all the time. We used to just have them plain with nothing mixed in, they are wonderful that way but they are also a blank slate where practically anything can be added.
I made pumpkin spice blondies the other day and they turned out incredible. This time I decided to do a household favorite, peanut butter and chocolate. Spencer loves Reese's cups, so any mixture of peanut butter and chocolate is always a winner with him! I was really pleased with the way these turned out, they had just the right amount of everything. Next time I'm probably going to try mixing in some peanut butter, just to enhance the flavor a little.
6-8 Tablespoons butter- softened (I used 8 in this batch)
1/4 Cup granulated sugar
3/4 Cup brown sugar
1 Teaspoon vanilla
1 Cup flour
1/4 Teaspoon baking powder
1/4-1/2 Milk chocolate chips
1/4-1/2 Reeses peanut butter chips
Preheat oven to 350 F.
In bowl or mixer cream butter and both sugars until smooth. Once blended incorporate the egg and vanilla. Sift flout and baking powder together and slowly add to mixture.
Add chocolate and peanut butter chips and stir until evenly incorporated.
Line 8x8 pan with foil and spray with cooking spray. Pour in Blondie Mixture. Bake for about 20-25 minutes. Let cool before cutting.
