What is one of the most valuable things a baker, especially a single baker like me, can have? Guinea pigs. No, not the furry kind. The hungry, human kind. I'm always wanting to try new recipes, and I'm thankful I have people who I know will gladly try them. If I didn't, I would either make a lot of treats that I would end of throwing away, or I would eat them all and weigh 300 pounds. For me, these guinea pigs are usually The Well band; they practice on Tuesday nights and I often make snacks for them.
This is another Pinterest recipe that I tried and was a hit with them, and will now be on my go-to list for desserts!
Chewy Toffee Blondies
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 cup flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoons salt
1 c. Milk Chocolate toffee bits (plain toffee would work too)
In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugars. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla.
Combine the flour, baking powder, and salt in a separate bowl. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the creamed mixture. Stir in toffee bits.
Spread evenly into a greased 13×9 baking pan. Bake at 350* F for 18-22 minutes, or until lightly browned. Cool on a wire rack. Let cool completely before cutting into bars.
