January 22 is Blonde Brownies Day! There is no actually documentation for the birth of National Blonde Brownie Day, but it was created in Upper Sandusky, Ohio. Today is the day to make, bake and eat blonde brownies.
Instead of the traditional dark brown brownies, this recipe is made with light brown sugar. This sweet dessert bar is also referred to as blondies. Served on the bottom of sundaes, and topped with caramel sauce is a sure way to satisfy your sweet tooth.
2 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
2 ½ teaspoons baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
1 ¾ cups light brown sugar
¾ cups (1 ½ sticks) butter or margarine, softened
3 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
1) Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease 8” square pan.
2) In a small bowl; combine flour, baking powder, salt. Beat sugar and butter in a large mixer bowl until creamy. Beat in eggs and vanilla extract; gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in morsels. Spread evenly into prepared pan.
3) Bake 20 – 25 minutes or until the top is golden brown. Cool in pan on a wire rack.
