Chewy Blonde Brownies are the delicious cousins of chocolate brownies and are easy to make with ingredients you probably already have in your kitchen.
1/4 cup butter or margarine, melted
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup chopped pecans
How to Make It
Combine butter and brown sugar in a large mixing bowl, mixing well. Add egg and vanilla, beating well.
Sift together flour, soda, and salt in a small mixing bowl. Gradually add to creamed mixture, stirring well. Stir in pecans. Spread mixture in a greased 9-inch square baking pan. Bake at 350° for 25 minutes. Cool and cut into 1 1/2-inch squares.
Just took them out of the oven. Reading other reviews, I added an extra egg along with 1/4 teaspoon of baking powder. I also added some chocolate chips while ommiting the nuts. I tried baking it for 20mins but it was still soft inside so added an extra 5mins. They're moist, not like a brick. A little bland though. Next time I will add the nuts. I will make them again.
My granddaughter and I made these and after reading the first review I added an extra egg and a 1/4 tsp baking powder to make them a little moister and rise better. They came out very moist and tender. I did only bake them for 20 minutes. We left the nuts out due to braces. We will bake them again and will probably double the batter to make it thicker. I gave this recipe only 4 stars because of the changes we made.
