YAY Stewie! These Blondie/Brownies were tasty, tasty, tasty! I made ours with almond extract and topped them with sliced almonds. When cool, I dusted them with powdered sugar. Elegant and delicious! Thank you! UPDATE: 7-09-09 ... Although I've made these twice already as brownies, I was asked to make them again for a dinner party. Not wanting to be a "one trick pony" I doubled the recipe, baked it off in 2 9" round cake pans (30-33 minutes); split the layers and filled with seedless raspberry jam; then stacked them and iced the cake with chocolate frosting. Kinda like rainbow cookies but on a grander scale. Incredible!
They are addicting and I couldn't eat just one, but they weren't over-the-top delicious. However, they are so stinkin' easy to make with ingredients always on hand that this recipe is a definite keeper.
These are absolutely great. I followed the recipe exactly except I used 1 tsp almond and 1 tsp vanilla extract and my daughter and I loved it. Definitely going into my recipe box!
