Blonde Brownies

I'mmmm back!! Aren't you so I tend to cook and bake more when Daniel is home from is when I finally have someone to hold the baby so I can get stuff done.

My sweet tooth has been in overdrive lately and so today after getting a craving for brownies I browsed around and stumbled upon this one.

Toll House Blonde Brownies~Ingredients:
  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 3/4 cups firmly packed brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup butter or margarine, softened
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 (12 ounce) package NESTLE® TOLL HOUSE® Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels

  1. PREHEAT oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 15x10-inch jelly-roll pan.
  2. COMBINE flour, baking powder and salt in a small bowl. Beat sugar and butter in a large mixing bowl until creamy. Beat in eggs and vanilla extract; gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in morsels. Spread into prepared pan.
  3. BAKE for 20 to 25 minutes or until top is golden brown. Cool in pan on wire rack.
These were all right but because they taste so much like cookies it's hard to think that they are actually brownies. I did bake these in a 9x13 inch pan to make them a little thicker, if I hadn't they probably would have been more cookie like. I adjusted the cooking time to around 30 minutes. I felt they were a little on the dry side but they definitely met the approval of my sweet tooth.
