52 cookies :: week 38 :: butterscotch blondies

today was the first cool day after another heat wave. i held off baking in anticipation of today.

52 cookies

Butterscotch Blondies
via Mark Bittman's How to Cook Everything

8 tbsp butter, melted
1 c brown sugar
1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla
pinch salt
1 c all-purpose flour

Butter an 8×8 pan. Preheat oven to 350 F.

Mix melted butter with brown sugar – beat until smooth. Beat in egg and then vanilla.
Add salt, stir in flour. Mix in any additions (below).

Pour into prepared pan. Bake 20-25 minutes, or until just set in the middle. Cool on rack before cutting. (of course you'll see above we couldn't wait...)

We went with a "Magic" variation and added: 1/2 c toasted walnuts and 1/2 c chocolate chips.


K: These cookies are so good. The blondies are so chocolaty. I like them sooooo much ... the walnuts tast so good with the chocolate... MMMMMmmmmm, MMMMMmmmmm,mm mmmmmm

E: Mmmmmmmm! These cookies are awesome! They have such a unique flavor. I ::heart:: them!

D: Great change up, these blondes are yummy, crumbly, sweet, buttery, and just right for this changing temperature moment that just might usher in autumn. The fall. Hmmm, it is just a cookie, but a cookie might become our leader.

I'm gonna come out and say it, "Binders full of cookies!!!"

52 cookies
