I looked high and low for the perfect blondies. I love them chewy not cake like and the walnuts are such a good accent to the brown sugar.

ok I have tried this recipe twice and realized that (a) real butter works good if not a fan of crisco did not come out greasy at all and the fake me out butter/margarine made it more cakey the second time around not sure what happened. (b) this recipe is just a starting off point in other words get creative, i added a hand full of chocolate chips, hand full of white chocolate chips, walnuts and those Heath Bar candy chips the first time and it was chocolatey, salty and sweet all in one bite. maybe next time some dried cherries or cranraisin with the dark choc and nuts.
Delicious! I didn't have butter flavored crisco so I used half butter, half regular crisco. Turned out light and fluffy, yet not cakey. I docked one star because it is borderline boring. I'll make this recipe again, but I will definitely spice it up with mix-ins.
I didn't have the butter flavored Crisco so like the other reviewer I did the mix of Crisco and butter (mostly butter). I poked in a bunch of mini marshmallows after I spread it in the pan as it looked a little small. I shouldn't have worried, it baked up fantastic. Very chewy and soft. No idea how they would taste when cooled, as they were GONE long before then!
