Nutty White-Chocolate Blondies

Blondies—named for their color—are the underappreciated cousin of brownies. Their butterscotch flavor is more subtle than that of an in-your-face cocoa brownie, but they are just as easy to make. We’ve also added toasty nuts and white chocolate, for a treat that’s begging for an accompanying scoop of vanilla ice cream.

What to buy: Be sure to pick up good-quality white chocolate chips, because the cheaper ones are usually waxy and filled with artificial flavors. If you don’t enjoy white chocolate, swap in your chocolate or butterscotch chip of choice.

This recipe was featured as part of our Back-to-School Bake Sale story.

Tips for Christmas


  1. 1Heat the oven to 350°F and arrange a rack in the middle. Coat a 13-by-9-inch baking dish with butter and flour; set aside.
  2. 2Combine butter and brown sugar in a large bowl and stir until evenly incorporated. Add vanilla, salt, and baking powder, and stir until thoroughly combined.
  3. 3Add eggs, and stir briefly until evenly incorporated. Add flour, and stir until just incorporated (no white streaks should remain). Stir in nuts and chips until just combined.
  4. 4Transfer batter to the prepared baking dish, and bake until golden brown and set, about 25 minutes. Remove from the oven and place on a wire rack to cool completely before cutting.
