    After reading the reviews, I was very cautious about the baking time and checked on the blondies after 25 minutes. They were perfect, golden on top, soft and moist, but not undercooked. I did not add any chocolate, although I think white chocolate chips would have been great. The only change I made was to add an extra 1/2 teaspoon vanilla.  -  13 Feb 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Very good - the batter tasted a lot like chocolate chip cookie dough, but after baking the brown sugar gave them a more caramel-y taste that was fabulous. (Plus my son dumped in extra vanilla which gave them a strong vanilla taste!) I baked them in a 9x13" pan for about 35 minutes or so, and they came out perfectly - a little crisp at the edges and a little softer in the middle, just like bar cookies should be. Fantastic recipe, thanks!  -  23 Sep 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    These were delicious brownies! I had tried other "blondie" recipes, but none that were just right. This recipe is just that. Perfect. I took these to a party, and they were gone in minutes. This recipe is a keeper! Thanks Stephanie.  -  26 Mar 2001  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
