Butterscotch Blondies

Butterscotch Blondies

Simply scrumptious butterscotch blondies, the sisters girlfriends to brownies. Instead of chocolate the dominant flavor is brown sugar. Rich and buttery brown sugar. The edges are chewy just like a brownie and the middles fudgy butterscotchy.

Can you believe these are the first blondies I ever made?  Crazy, right?

The original recipe calls for sprinkling the top with chocolate chips and chopped walnuts. I didn’t have either.  Another reason why I love them. You can dress them up or down and they will still be divine. Whatever your whimsy. Toss in your favorite flavored chips, nuts or even candy bar pieces.

So very sweet they will quiet even the strongest sweet tooth.  Even then they are hard to stop eating. Dangerously addictive. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.

The Sugar Queen by Sarah Addison Allen

What goes better with blondies than milk a delicious read to curl up with? I just finished reading The Sugar Queen by Sarah Addison Allen. A magical story where passion makes eggs fry in their cartons, fairy godmothers live in closets stock-piled with sweets, secrets come unbound and love is lost and found. The chapter titles are all named after candy like lemon drops, sweet tarts, rock candy, sour patch…It’s an adorable read!

    I'm more of a mystery type person but those blondies sure do look good. I think I remember making something like that way back when.
