How I love the bar…

…Bar Cookies, that is! One of the joys of making brownies is having them done in one batch. I make a lot of brownies, but every now and then one likes to have a different flavor, enter the Blondie. You get all the joys of a chocolate chip cookie without having to do 5 batches and kill your afternoon. This Blondie is by far my favorite recipe… it has a lot of flavor and the texture is so rich and chewy, you may never make Toll House cookies again!
On my batch, I like to sprinkle chopped pecans on half of the pan to appease my nut fans and nut-haters alike! If you don’t have that issue, the pecans really add a nice crunch and flavor to these bars! I hope you like them!

Loaded Blondie

2 and 1/2 cups of flour
1 t baking powder
1/2 t. salt
1 c. softened butter
2 cups brown sugar
1 T vanilla
2 eggs
1 T cream or milk
1/4 tsp freshly grated nutmeg
1 cup butterscotch chips
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup white chocolate chips
1 cup chopped pecans

Preheat oven to 350 deg. Cream the butter well, add the eggs, vanilla and cream and mix until well combined. Mix the flour, baking powder and salt together and add it to the butter mixture and mix until incorporated. Add all the chips, and stir until just mixed. Cover a 13×9 pan with foil and add the batter to the pan spreading it evenly over the entire pan. Sprinkle the pecans over the top. Bake for 32-38 minutes, or until just done. Let cool, invert on a cutting board, peel off foil. Invert back and cut into bars. Enjoy!
