Brown Butter Blondie

I have a huge weakness for sweets. I love everything from chocolate to hard candy, so when it comes to choosing a favorite it can be incredibly difficult. However, when it comes to the baked goods variety these brown butter blondies take the cake ;)

The browned butter creates a soft nutty flavor that is like no other. I'm telling you, if you haven't tried these before I highly suggest you drop whatever you are doing and gather up the ingredients for these tasty baked squares. You can find the ingredients and recipe below:


  • 1 1/4 C (2 1/2 sticks) unsalted butter, plus more for pan

  • 2 1/4 C all-purpose flour, plus more for pan

  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder

  • 1 1/2 tsp salt

  • 2 C packed light-brown sugar

  • 1/2 C granulated sugar

  • 3 large eggs

  • 2 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter a 9-by-13-inch baking pan. Line bottom of pan with parchment paper; butter and flour parchment paper.

In a saucepan over medium heat, cook the butter until it turns golden brown; remove from heat, and let cool. Whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt.

In the bowl of an electric mixer, combine browned butter and both sugars; stir with a wooden spoon until combined. Attach bowl to mixer; add eggs. Using the paddle attachment, beat on medium-high speed until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add vanilla, and beat to combine. Add flour mixture, mix until thoroughly combined, and pour into prepared pan.

Bake until a cake tester inserted in the center comes out clean, 35 to 40 minutes (do not overbake). Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely before turning out of pan onto a cutting board. Peel off parchment paper; cut blondies into 3-inch squares or into suit shapes with 1 1/2- to 2-inch cookie cutters. Just before serving, dust half with confectioners' sugar, if desired.
