Years ago -- I baked some blonde brownies that were rich, butterscotch-y and delicious. And never have found the recipe since!
Most blonde brownies are dry and overly chocolate-y. These are good.
So here goes the recipe!
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. And spray a 9x13 baking dish with vegetable spray. I'm pretty certain these wouldn't stick -- but why take the chance! One of my food instructors in college (Mrs. Ries) said ........ "A cookie that can't grease its own butt, isn't worth baking!" I agree.
Mix together the following -- 2 cups of flour
1 tsp of baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1/2 cup chopped pecans
And set this aside.
In the meantime -- melt 2/3 cup of butter. Stir in 2 cups of dark brown sugar, let it cool slightly and beat in 2-3 eggs. Use 2 if they are extra large -- 3, otherwise. And then stir in the "secret" ingredient ...... 2 tbsps. of vanilla. Yep!! That is right.
Stir in the flour mixture -- a little at a time and mix well. Spread into the 9x13 pan and sprinkle 1/2 c to 3/4 cup of chocolate chips on the top.
Bake for 30 minutes.
