Butterscotch Blondies….the brownie’s blonde cousin.
I love baking. Even in the heat…the recipe ideas call to me…. Butterscotch Blondies called to me.
I made these on Friday.
I told my family I was making blondies and my kids went Wha? I said you know “Blondie” the music group…total silence, heads cocked sideways like confused cocker spaniels. Total Errrr? Wha??? looks on their
little not so little faces. I said, “I’m kidding, it’s like a brownie”, their confused looks remained. *sigh* I said, “A blondie is like a brownie, except it is not chocolate”. They then, meekly nodded in agreement…just grin and nod at the crazy Momma is probably what they were thinking…grin and nod.
So, for those who don’t know…
A Blondie is like a Brownie, but blonde not brown, it’s not chocolate and it’s a little cooler…because it was made in tribute to the pop group Blondie. The song “Heart of glass” being the inspiration.
or so says wikipedia.
Urban dictionary was no help. The best they had to offer was a Pot brownie made with white chocolate….soooooo not going there. Just say NO people. Just say No!
but maybe that’s just me.
Anyhoo, on with the recipe.
WHAT YOU NEED
Wait…wait…first you have to see the cutest baking dish EVER! It was a gift, from a dear friend.
See, it was worth the pause right?
WHAT YOU NEED
- 2 cups of all-purpose flour (sifted) I have not tried this recipe with whole wheat flour yet….
- 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
- 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
- 1 cup (two sticks) of butter (at room temperature)
- 1/2 cup of light brown sugar (firmly packed)
- 3/4 cup of sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 1/3 cup of buttermilk
- 1 tablespoon of vanilla
- 1 cup of butterscotch morsels
Pre-heat your oven (blah the heat, but yum the desert) 375 degrees F. Spray your baking pan with baking spray, rub it with butter (whatever you like to do to grease up the pan)
Sift the dry ingredients into a bowl. In your mixer (or your mixing bowl) place the butter and both types of sugar. Whip those bad boys until they are creamy and a pale yellow color. Add the eggs, the buttermilk and the vanilla and continue to mix the “wet” ingredients until they are creamy and smooth. Slowly…slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients continue mixing on a med-low speed.
Try not to eat them all in one day.
