      I used vanilla extract, and I opted for the dried cherry and whiskey options (very good combo, if you don't mind slightly boozy blondies). My blondies took an extra 10 minutes to be fully baked (they were so wet-looking at 25 minutes that I was chalking it up to the whiskey I added, but seeing other reviews tells me that it's just the way this recipe is. They were still pretty gooey-looking at 35 minutes, but the edges appeared baked. Once they fully cooled, they were perfect (crisp outside and chewy inside). If you're prefer cakey over fudgy in brownies/blondies, then you might want to pass this one by, but if fudgy texture is your nirvana, these are right up your alley! I'll definitely be trying some of the other variations. Thanks for posting! Made for the Variety is the Spice of Life 2013 event

      I made this as part of the Variety Event~2013. I elected to add bananas & 1 cup of vanilla chips. The blondies were sweet and the banana flavor strong. However the blondies had a slightly gummy texture even though the edges were crisp and the toothpick tested clean. I enjoyed making them and like that the recipe is pantry friendly and can utilize what's on hand. I will use the recipe again with a different varation.

      Wow these were sweet and rich! I used butterscotch chips and chocolate chips. Very very intense - I recommend topping with ice cream to cut the richness.
