Pumpkin Spice Snickerdoodle Blondies

Halloween Snickerdoodle Blondies

I strongly associate flavors like cinnamon, ginger and cloves with the fall because they are the main ingredients in pumpkin pie spice, which features in a lot of my recipes around this time of year. And I’m not the only one who uses those flavors more in the fall than other times of the year. Starbucks makes a Pumpkin Spice Latte and Mars even makes ... Read More »

Cookies n’ Cream Blondies

Cookies n' Cream Blondies

The combination of chocolate cookies with a vanilla cream filling is so good that it’s not surprising that Oreos are the best selling cookie in the US and one of the best selling in the world. They were one of my favorites as a kid, always served with a big glass of milk. The cookies n’ cream flavor has found its way into all kinds ... Read More »

Blackberry Blondies

Blackberry Blondies

Blondies are the blank canvases of the bar cookie world. They have a slightly dense, chewy texture, but they are relatively plain and get most of their flavor from the mix-ins that go into the basic batter, such as chocolate chips, nuts, and dried fruits. Fresh fruit isn’t typically an ingredient that you’ll find in a batch of blondies, but when my kitchen is bursting ... Read More »

Vanilla Bean Blondies

Vanilla Bean Blondies

Blondies are the lighter colored counterpart to brownies. They’re dense, chewy bar cookies that have a fudgy texture similar to that of a brownie, but without any chocolate. These Vanilla Bean Blondies have that deliciously chewy texture that you want in a blondie with a whole lot of vanilla. I used a whole vanilla bean in this batch, which gives them an amazing vanilla flavor ... Read More »

Peppermint is often paired with dark chocolate, but it can be an excellent match for white chocolate, too. White chocolate is creamy and sweet, and can serve as a very nice counterpoint to strong, bright peppermint. This is exactly how these flavors come together in these White Chocolate Peppermint Crunch Blondies. The easy to make bar cookies are buttery, chewy and tender, with a creamy ... Read More »

Trader Joe’s Blondie Bar Baking Mix, reviewed

TJ's Blondie Mix

Trader Joe’s has put out quite a few baking mixes over the years, mixes with all natural ingredients and a very low price tag that makes them pretty appealing, even for “scratch” bakers. I’ve had mixed results from a few mixes, and very good results from others, and that is enough to keep me curious when I see that they’ve added a new product to ... Read More »

Milk Chocolate and Coconut Blondies

Milk Chocolate and Coconut Blondies

I bake brownies more often than I bake blondies, because the fudgy chocolate bars are always a crowd pleaser and they simply come to mind a bit more often than their non-chocolate counterparts. Blondies are such a versatile type of bar cookie, however, because you can work any ingredients you want into them – chocolate or not. They’re also much quicker to bake than individual ...

Maple Sugar Pecan Bars

Maple Sugar Pecan Bars

Maple sugar is sugar that is produced when you cook down the sap of a maple tree past the point of being maple syrup, until it has almost no liquid and you are left with sandy crystals. It is an intensely flavorful ingredient and can be a lot of fun to work with – especially if you are a maple syrup fan in general. Maple ... Read More »
