Brown Butter Blondies

So brownies are … nice. I actually prefer cookies. How about you? I’m not a huge brownie/ blondies fan. Blondies are just brownies with chocolate. I prefer blondies to brownies though. This was just delicious. I read this in a Bon Appetit magazine.This is now my effort to make all the recipes that I’ve bookmarked over the years. Please bear with me! 🙂

My kids made these. They are super easy to make.

Brown Butter Blondies
(recipe originally from Bon Appetit)

For the Brown Butter:
1/2 cup Butter
1 Egg
3/4 cup Brown Sugar
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
1/2 tsp Salt
1/3 cup All-Purpose Flour

For the Blondie:

1 cup Butter, softened
2 1/4 cups All-Purpose Flour
1 1/2 tsp Baking Powder
1 1/2 tsp Salt
1 3/4 cup Brown Sugar

2 Eggs
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
Make the Brown Butter Mixture:
Melt the butter in a saucepan, over medium heat, stir often until the butter foams and the butter browns, about 5-8 minutes. Let cool slightly.
Add the egg, vanilla, salt and brown sugar. Beat the mixture until smooth, about 3 minutes. Fold in the flour gently.
Make the Blondies:
Preheat the oven to 180 deg C.
Whisk together the dry ingredients: 2 1/4 cups flour, the salt and the baking powder.  In a separate bowl, using an electric mixer, cream 1 cup butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes. Add eggs, one at a time, and beat until combined, and pale and fluffy. Mix in vanilla.
Mix in dry ingredients until completely combined.
Pour in half the blondie mixture into a buttered 13″ by 9″ baking dish. Smooth the top. Add the brown butter mixture as a layer on the top and smooth it out. Next add the remaining blondie mixture on top of the brown butter mixture.
Bake until golden brown, about 30-35 minutes. Allow to cool.
