Chewy Chunky Blondies
This week's Tuesdays with Dorie recipe is one of my favorites: Chewy, Chunky Blondies. To a butter-and-brown sugar bar cookie batter you add chocolate chips, toffee bits, coconut and walnuts. Really, really yummy.
I intended to make a batch to freeze for daughter Lydia's upcoming wedding rehearsal picnic. I made the batter, put it in the oven, but was completely distracted and pulled it out without really testing for doneness. When I cut in to it to sample, it was clearly underdone. Not inedible, of course, but not up to my high standards for wedding guests. So I set it aside on my counter and made another batch the next day, baked it an extra ten minutes and it is perfect. I wrapped these bars up in foil and froze them in happy anticipation of the wedding rehearsal dinner.
And what happened to the not-quite-perfect blondies? Uhmmm, as you can see, a nibble here, a nibble there and this is all that remains!
