Directions for: Brown Butter Blondies


1 sticks butter

1 cup brown sugar

2 eggs

2 Tbsp vanilla

1 cup flour

¼ tsp baking powder

¼ tsp salt

1 cup pine nuts

1 cup caramel chips


1. Preheat your oven to 350°F. Lightly oil an 8x8-inch baking pan.

2. Melt the butter in a small saucepan. Continue heating, swirling gently as it begins to foam and steam, releasing moisture. Continue swirling as the milky bits begin to brown forming a golden residue under the butter fat. When they are rich golden brown, pour it into a heatproof mixing bowl. Add the brown sugar, eggs and vanilla and blend well.

3. In a separate bowl, whisk the dry ingredients together. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt. Add to the wet and stir the batter until smooth. Stir in the nuts and candy bits and pour into the prepared baking pan. Bake 45 minutes. Cool for a few minutes before cutting into squares.
