White chocolate walnut Blondies!Posted: February 19, 2008 | |
DH parents were coming into town and his dad cant eat dark or milk chocolate, so I needed to find a dessert that we all could enjoy! I found several Blondie recipes and came up with this from all the great suggestions on WC board!
1/2 pound, plus 1 teaspoon butter, at room temperature
1 1/2 cups light brown sugar -I used regular brown sugar, the Splenda blend!
1 tablespoons vanilla extract
3 cups plus 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 cups white chocolate chips
1 cup macadamia nuts, toasted and rough chopped -I used walnuts gently chopped.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Place 1/2 pound of the butter and the brown sugar in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Cream the butter and sugar on medium speed until a smooth batter is formed. While the machine is running, add the eggs and vanilla extract, until incorporated into the batter.Sift together 3 cups flour and baking powder. Slowly add the flour mixture to the batter and mix on low speed until a dough is formed. Very gently, by turning the mixer on and then off, fold the chips and nuts into the dough.
Once the dough is all blended, grease a 9 by 9-inch baking pan with the remaining butter and dust with the 1 tablespoon of flour. Pour the batter into the pan and place in the preheated oven. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until set yet still moist.
