This is a very quick and easy recipe for non-chocolate brownies. Of course, you could always add some chocolate chips into the mix!
I've been making these blondies for the past several weeks now because my boyfriend likes them so much. Only a couple of differences with my version: * I use 1/3 cup of real butter instead of shortening. The butter pretty much makes this treat. *I use 2/3 cup of brown sugar...it's definitely sweet enough without the other 1/3 cup * I use 1/4 cup chopped pecans & I fold in 1/2 cup of white chocolate chips for a "macadamia" feel to it. Also, make sure you mix the flour mixture a little at a time so the mixture stays smooth. Excellent! - 16 Jul 2007 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
I made this recipe at home and although it was easy, i felt, actually know that it should say butter, NOT shortening. When I took it out of the over, a disgusting smell of shortening entered my kitchen, i began to gag and after i tried the awful thing i had to spit it out right away. Please Camellia, don't worry about people not wanting butter in their dishes, worry about them gagging at the smell. Although i will NEVER use this site again for my baking needs, if i did i would certainly use butter now that i know what awful food comes out of the "shortening desserts". - 24 Aug 2005 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
If you make the following changes, this will be a 5 star recipe: Butter instead of Shortening Use softened butter and beat with mixer (skip the whole melting in a pot bit) Skip the nuts I doubled this recipe- a single batch made too thin of a blondie. Baking time will be 25-30 minutes depending on your oven. When made with those changes, the blondie is soft, moist, and reminds me of the blondies they would serve at summer camp as a kid! - 01 Feb 2010 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
