I had full intentions this week to post two brownies recipes.... one for the beloved recipe below and another for a to die for chocolcate brownie. (who knows, maybe I will get frisky this weekend and bake them) But this week has been a doozy for me between work, life, and adding my MBA class back into my routine (started executive accounting last week... ZZZzzzzZZZZ), so I apologize I am a little late in my post this week.

This week I made blondies for my 'bake brownies' week. You may be asking yourself, "what is a blondie?"... Well a blondie is a blonde + brownie = BLONDIE dessert bar. I made these delicious blondies for a baby shower at work. Something as simple as a blondie is sure to please a crowd!!!

2 sticks of butter (16 tablespoons), melted
2 cups brown sugar
2 large egg
2 teaspoon vanilla
large pinch of salt
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup chocolate chips
1 cup walnuts (or pecans)

Preheat the oven to 350. Spray 9x13 with bakers joy. Mix the melted butter with the brown sugar in a mixer -- Beat the mixture until smooth. While mixing, add in the eggs and vanilla. Add the salt and slowly add in the flour. With a rubber spatula, fold in the nuts and chocolate chips. Spread mixture into the 9x13 pan. Bake for 25 minutes... Don't over bake, they are delicious when they are moist and gooey! So pay attention for golden edges and a firm center! Completely cool the blondies before cutting. I also cut my blondies with the same tool my mother used! It truly does make for perfect cuts!
