I admit that I haven't been the best poster this week. I've been working on getting some things into the Fork and Swoon shop along with creating a new Vintage shop with Brian. It is exciting and exhausting along with all the other work and life responsibilities, but I am really glad to get the ball rolling on both.
I threw together some blondies this afternoon to bring to Brian's sisters house tonight.
I think they still need some tweaking, but a very good basic recipe and easy to make on a whim.
2 sticks unsalted butter
1 cup light brown sugar
Melt the brown sugar and butter together in a medium saucepan over medium heat until smooth. Remove from the heat and cool for 10 minutes.
Heat the oven to 350˚F and line an 8x8 glass dish with a piece of parchment paper.
Add to the butter and sugar:
Beat until well combined.
Add 1 teaspoon vanilla and 1 cup of all purpose flour and a heavy pinch of kosher salt.
Stir until well combined and pour into the prepared pan. You can also fold in 1 cup of chocolate chips or walnuts or other nuts or m&ms or whatever before panning and baking. Bake for 25-28 minutes until golden and set to the touch. Cool for at least 20 minutes before using the parchment as a sling and cutting the blondies.
I packaged them in an old Olvatine container wrapped with a scrap of fun paper, just because, well I wanted them to be cute and yummy.
And don't worry I'm also bringing a salad.
