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.

This is a wonderful recipe! I loved it as written and also as a base for additions. I added pecans, dried cherries and almond extract. Wow.. I am really excited to find this one so I can experiment with flavors. Thanks for posting it.

This recipe was easy and very good. I used plain Crisco and pecans. I put batter in 2 pie tins for thinner and tasty brownies.
