Mom Knows Best : Blondies

Saturday, November 9, 2013


This is an easy cookie recipe to make and so yummy. I made two different batches,one with white chocolate chips and the other with milk chocolate chips.

3/4 cup brown sugar
1 large egg
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
8 tablespoons (1 stick)  butter, melted
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 cup white or milk chocolate chips

Position a rack in the center of the oven and preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.

Lightly butter an 8-inch square baking pan. Beat together the sugar and egg until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add the vanilla and butter and beat to mix well. In a small bowl, stir together the flour, baking soda, and salt and add to the butter mixture, beating until just incorporated. Do not overmix. Using a spoon, stir in the white or milk chocolate chips.

Spoon the batter into the prepared pan and use a flat metal spatula or a butter knife to smooth the top. Bake the blondies for 25 to 30 minutes, until the top is dry and golden and a knife inserted in the center comes out with just a few crumbs attached (not wet, but not perfectly dry). Remove the pan from the oven and place on a wire rack to cool. Cut the blondies into 2-inch squares. The blondies can be stored, well wrapped, at room temperature for up to 3 days (these seem to get better as they sit) or frozen for up to 2 months (thaw before serving)


  1. My kids would be solidly divided between the white and chocolate chip varieties. Sounds like a great go-to recipe!

  2. Oh I grew up on these--takes me back to childhood!

  3. Thanks for the recipe. Definitely using white chocolate chips!

  4. Love a good blondie, I made some with dark chips that were to die for!!

  5. If only I had the energy to make these right NOW! :-)

  6. I would go with dark myself. ;) Yum!

  7. I adore white chocolate- going to try this!
