Blondies are a bar cookie, and like a brownie, but without the dark chocolate. This recipe includes macadamia nuts, white chocolate chips and toasted coconut.
Recipe type: Dessert | Bar Cookie
  • ⅓ cup unsalted butter, room temperature
  • ¾ cup firmly packed light brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips
  • ½ cup macadamia nuts, coarsely chopped
  • ½ cut toasted sweetened coconut
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Prepare one 9x9x2 inch square pan; lightly grease the pan with shortening.
  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine butter and brown sugar; use an electric mixer or wooden spoon and beat together until mixture appears light and fluffy. Add egg and vanilla; beat until thoroughly mixed. Add flour, baking powder, and salt; stir until well mixed. Add white chocolate chips, nuts, and coconut; stir until mixed.
  2. Bake: Spread the dough evenly in the baking pan. Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Leave cookie in pan to cool; place baking pan on a wire cooling rack to cool. Cut into 2 inch squares.
Tip: My favorite tool to cut bar cookies is a stainless steel dough scraper; simply push the dough scraper straight down into the cookie for straight cuts. Or use a pizza cutter or small kitchen knife to cut the cookie into bars.

TheBakingPan Recommends: The BEST instant read thermometer I’ve used for cooking and baking; the ThermoWorks Splash-Proof Super-Fast Thermapen Thermometer is incredibly fast, ThermoWorks Splash-Proof Super-Fast Thermapenaccurate, and well worth the investment. I use my Thermapen Thermometer for checking room temperature ingredients, tempering chocolate, baking bread, making pastry creams, sugar syrup, caramel, and candy, cooking meats and fish, and deep frying. Thermapen Thermometer available here.
