White Chocolate Chip and Toasted Pecan Butterscotch Blondies.


The past couple of weeks have left me craving sweets like crazy but with little time to bake them in.  Luckily blondies are extremely fast to put together, which means they get to my mouth sooner!

You really should wait until they're completely cool before cutting them, I recommend using the fridge or freezer if you don't have the willpower to postpone devouring them.


I know a lot of recipes that call for white chocolate specify the high quality stuff, but I happen to absolutely love white chocolate chips.  Sometimes a handful after dinner is the only thing that can quell my sweet tooth!  These blondies are for my fellow people with a sweet tooth - incredibly addictive and moreish.

White Chocolate Chip and Toasted Pecan Butterscotch Blondies
Adapted from Southern Living Incredible Cookies
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/3 cup unsalted butter, melted and cooled slightly
3/4 cup light brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 large egg
1/2 cup pecans, toasted and coarsely chopped
1/2 cup white chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. and spray an 8x8" glass baking dish with cooking spray.

In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt.  In a larger mixing bowl, cream together the melted butter, brown sugar and vanilla until lightened in color, then add in the egg and mix well.  Stir in the flour mixture, then add in the pecans and white chocolate chips.  Scrape the batter into the prepared pan and bake until just set and golden brown on top, 15-20 minutes.

Let them cool completely, then cut into small squares or rectangles.  These keep airtight up to 3 days, but I guarantee they won't last that long!

  2. These blondies look super yummy and the recipe looks delicious. I haven't had bloodies... or brownies in a long while. I am going to have to change that.

  3. Fantastic! I can skim the crunchy toasted pecan. It's been months since my last blondies which my friends enjoyed. This will be another talk of the town in my place :)

  6. Someone once left a comment on one of my recipes, long ago, that said something like "sometimes I feel like titles of things are just many yummy words crammed together" and your title reminded me of it. It's like a taking a good thing and making it better layer by layer. I mean blondies are awesome (wink wink), but you add pecans and Bam! They're better. Butterscotch and Blamo! White chocolate chips and kill me now, they sound to die for.

  18. You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be really
    something that I think I would never understand.
    It seems too complicated and very broad for me. I am looking forward for your next post, I'll try to get the hang of it!
