I followed this recipe exactly as written except for 3 thing. I added a tsp of maple extract in additon to the vanilla extract. I use it in my cookies and thought it would be great as well in these. I also was short on brown sugar so I used 1 cup brown sugar and 1 cup regular white sugar. I also tend to like my brownies thicker so I used a 9 x 9 pan and then of course had to let them bake about an additional 10 minutes. Here in Colorado in high altitude i have problems w/ my baked goods not staying as soft, but since these are naturally soft they have been easier to keep fresh. I have made blonde brownies before and used other recipes but these are by far the best ones I've ever made.
I have made this recipe twice, and it is absolutely AMAZING. It is a great substitute for chocolate chip cookies, and is even better in my opinion. However, I did make a few small changes the second time around. I sifted my flour first, and then measured, which made it take about 1/4 less flour unsifted. I Also made sure to spray cooking spray in the pan before putting the batter in (you could also use a little but of extra melted margarine to spread in the bottom of the pan if you don't have cooking spray). Lastly, I covered the pan with tin foil as soon as it came out of the oven, and poked about 10 holes in the foil (this made the brownies a lot more moist). Everything else in this recipe I followed to a T. I will definitely be making this recipe again.
Yummy! My boyfriend was craving chocolate chip cookies and I wanted to make something a little different. These were a perfect compromise. It turned out like a gigantic soft chocolate chip cookie! I will definitely be making these again!
One of my favorites!
I've made these several times already. Very delicious and my family loves them. Wouldn't change a thing on them. I just add a scoop of ice cream when they are done. These don't last long in my family.
This was simple, easy, and really good. I didn't have chocolate chips so I substituted cinnamon chips. Turned out great.
I just made these today. Very easy to make and absolutely delicious!!!!
WONDERFUL! Dark brown sugar with a teaspoon of cinnamon in addition to dark chocolate chips (per recipe) and lots of pecans. Killer deliciousness!! Crackled top, chewy edges and softer middle - something for everyone. Thanks for a keeper recipe!
These were awesome. I didn't trust it at first when I made them because the batter was so thick, but it worked out wonderfully! They were dElicious.
I was going to submit my recipe for Blonde Borwnies, but it is almost identical to this one. We double the chocolate chips that are in this recipe, and only use 1/4 teaspoon baking soda. I never put nuts in mine, but may start now that I've read your version. Those are the differences! It is an excellent recipe, and I made it for years as a substitute to cookies for my boys' lunches. I am adding your version to my cookbook (with notes of the different quatnities). We love this brownie!
