Blonde Brownies

What's better than a gooey, rich Chocolate Brownie? A Blonde Brownie! Maybe not better, but darned good in their own right. My Mom used to make Blonde Brownies for her seven kids, and they certainly didn't last long! Blonde Brownies are made without chocolate (for the most part, although my Mom always sprinkled chocolate chips on the top of hers) and are made sweet and chewy with brown sugar.

Blonde Brownies
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts or pecans
  • 2/3 cup butter
  • 2 cups firmly packed brown sugar
  • 2 eggs beaten
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • chocolate chips (optional)
Combine flour, soda, baking powder and salt. Add the chopped nuts to this mixture. Melt butter and add brown sugar in separate bowl. Mix well, and add eggs and vanilla to brown sugar mixture. Slowly add flour mixture and mix together thoroughly. Pour into greased 13 x 9 pan, sprinkle chocolate chips on the top if desired. Bake at 325 degree oven for 40 minutes or until toothpick inserted comes out clean.
