Blondie brownies

Servings: 4 servings

Every Christmas I try and come up with a few new cookie ideas for the oh-so-familiar cookie exchange parties or the inevitable cookie gifting, and this year the cookie of choice was a blondie brownie.

Not a cookie you say, well technically you are right but as I was testing this brownie I realized it’s not too far from a giant cookie. Expect this blondie to be crisp on the outside, soft on the inside with a perfect amount of sweet.

I created these for my son’s schools bake sale and jazzed them up with melted chocolate, M&M’s, snow caps and Kit Kat bars. Delicious!


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

In a large bowl mix together the softened butter, vegetable oil, brown sugar and white sugar until well incorporated.

Add in the eggs and vanilla then mix until it is a smooth consistency.

Add in the baking powder, salt and flour.

Mix well.

Then add the chocolate chips to the bowl and fold them into the mixture.

Spray a quarter sheet pan with non stick spray and press the dough into the pan.

Smooth it across the top and bake in the oven for 30 minutes.

Remove from the oven allow it to cool for 10 – 15 minutes and then cut into squares.
