I love making simple desserts, especially so on a lazy weekend. And these are effiortless!!
Brownies are about the simplest thing to bake and their counterpart, Blondies are equally undemanding too. Their not called Chewy, Chunky Blondies for nothing - the addition of choc chunks, coarsely chopped walnuts, coconut and in this case white chocolate chunks (the original recipe called for butterscoth chips or Heath Toffee bits) make this such a chewy delight.
I halved the recipe and thus shortened the baking time to 20 minutes. My cake tester was clean when I inserted it into the middle of the pan, but I wanted my blondies to turn more golden brown as the recipe stated and left it in the oven for another three minutes. Still, I think these are just a tad bit underbaked - Dorie's looked much dryer in the book. Nevertheless, they are chewy and chunkylicious buttery goodness!!
The recipe is from page 109 from Baking from my home to yours.
