Katie's Blondies
Author: adapted from Katie Workman
Prep time: 15 mins
Cook time: 24 mins
Total time: 39 mins
  • 12 tablespoons (1½ sticks) unsalted butter
  • 1¾ cups light or dark brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1¾ cups all purpose flour
  • ¾ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 cup semisweet or bittersweet chocolate chips
  1. For the blondies:
  2. Preheat the oven to 350°. Line a 13” x 9” baking pan with parchment paper and set aside.
  3. Melt the butter in a medium saucepan. Remove from the heat and stir in the brown sugar. Set aside for at least 5 minutes.
  4. Combine the eggs and vanilla in a glass. Set aside.
  5. Whisk together the flour, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
  6. After the butter/brown sugar mixture has cooled, quickly add eggs/vanilla so that the eggs do not cook. Stir in the dry ingredients. Lastly, add the chocolate chips.
  7. Transfer to the baking pan and bake in 350° oven for 24 minutes, rotating the pan halfway through. Remove from the oven and cool completely before cutting.
  8. Once cool, lift the parchment paper out of the pan and transfer to a cutting board. Cut into 24 bars.
  9. Betsy's tidbits:
  10. Both light and dark brown sugar work beautifully. Personal preference will dictate which is used.
  11. Nuts may be substituted for chocolate chips or use a combination of nuts/chips to equal 1 cup.
  12. My edges always rise a bit higher than the rest of the Blondies. For a pretty presentation, trim crust edges off before cutting Blondies. The edges are a delicious snack.
  13. I prefer moister Blondies. If you prefer them cakier, bake for a total of 26 or 28 minutes.
