Blondies

I watched Nancy Drew, the movie, yesterday and there is a blondie in it. I was craving them the whole day after that. I found this new recipe last night so I made them and they were so yummy! I added a few extra white chocolate chips than it calls for, but I followed everything else exactly as it's written. This has to be one of my new favorite desserts. Seriously. So good.

1 1/2 cups flour
1 t baking powder
1/2 t salt
1 1/2 sticks softened butter or margerine
1 1/2 cups packed light brown sugar
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
4 t vanilla extract
1 cup white chocolate chips

1. Adjust oven rack to middle position; heat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Cut 18" length foil and fit foil into length of 13 x 9 " baking pan, pushinig it into corners and up sides of pan; allow excess to overhang pan edges. Spray foil-lined pan with nonstick cooking spray.
3. Whisk flour, baking powder, and salt together in medium bowl; set aside.
4. Whisk softened butter and brown sugar together in medium bowl until combined. Add eggs and vanilla and mix well. Using rubber spatula, fold dry ingredients into egg mixture until just combined; do not overmix. Fold in chocolate and turn batter into prepared pan, smoothing top with rubber spatula.
5. Bake until top is shiny, cracked, and light golden brown, 22 to 25 min; do not overbake. Cool on wire rack to room temperature. Remove bars from pan by lifting foil overhang and tranfer to cutting board. Cut into 2" squares and serve.

I keep coming back here again and again to look at this recipe. Just when I think that I've talked myself out of making them (my hips and butt really don't need them) I come back and look again. I think I'm just going to give in and make them tomorrow.
