Butterscottch Blondies

8-1 Blondies

The Blondie vs. The Brownie? Who comes out on top?

For me the browned butter and butterscotchy-ness pummels the brownie. Now, I love chocolate, but I think I may love butterscotch a little bit more. Perhaps it’s because chocolate is everywhere, but a truly delicious butterscotch recipe is much rarer.

The magic maker of this recipe: browned butter. Who knew you could brown butter and that it tastes delicious? Browned butter is like an angel brushing its wings against your cheek (I love hypberboles almost as much as I love these blondies) This is one of the few desserts I will repeatedly make, which means they are good. What are you waiting for? Go forth, brown butter, and make these blondies!
