To my recollection, I have never had a blondie, but I guessed it was like a cousin to the brownie, just not chocolaty. Well, to make a short story even shorter, these blondies were pretty darn fantastic. I have never used butterscotch chips before, but I’ve always wanted to and because I couldn’t find butter fudge (whatever that is) I decided to sub in butterscotch chips. I think they may overpower the blondie just a little bit, but not much. It’s a nice combination.
I was surprised at the outcome of the batter though. I was expecting some sort of fluid like batter, but it turned into more of a cookie dough batter. I don’t know if that’s how many blondies are or if it’s just this particular recipe. Either way, the batter tasted good and it baked well too.
I was really tempted to just make this into a cookie,s icne the batter was so thick, but I stuck to the blondie aspect of it.
Here it is, all nice and golden brown.
My dad also got a new camera, and so I've been trying to take pictures with it instead of my sister's camera.
