Pecan Pie Blondies

01a blond

I think of blondies as a base for experimenting with all things decadent and sweet. Blondies are tasty on their own, but when you add a bit of richness it takes a basic bar and turns it into something extraordinary. That’s what happened when I had a request for pecan pie and another for blondies; I decided to combine the two and they turned out phenomenally. It’s like a pecan pie in a cookie, shaped like a bar, pure deliciousness.

Pecan Pie Blondies

Any basic blondie recipe here’s oneI use

1 cup pack brown sugar

1/2 cup melted butter

1 egg

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 cup flour

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

pinch of salt

1/2 mini chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350. Mix the brown sugar, egg and vanilla on medium for about a minute. Add the melted butter and mix for another minute. Pour in the flour, baking soda and salt and mix until combined, stir in the mini chocolate chips (I like mini because they give you a little bite of chocolate without overpowering the flavor). Place in a parchment lined 8 x 8 baking pan and cook for 15 minutes.

Pecan Pie Topping

1/2 cup light corn syrup

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/4 cup melted butter

2 teaspoons vanilla

1 egg

1 1/2 cups chopped pecans

Whisk together the corn syrup, brown sugar, butter, vanilla and egg. Stir in the pecans. After the blondies have cooked for 15 minutes, remove from the oven and pour the pecan pie topping evenly over the top. Cook for an additional 20 minutes or until toothpick comes out crumbly.
