I bake a sweet thing for my husband every weekend, and this time, he asked for some blondies. Having never made any before, I came to Allrecipes and chose this one. I really hate to give negative reviews, but I was very disappointed in these. The flavor was only so-so. The shortening (I used the popular brand's butter flavor) leaves this blondie with an oily texture that wasn't very pleasing. The center of the pan never got firm. It stayed the consistency of the raw batter and would not set. For fear of ruining the edges by overbaking, I gave up after 35 minutes. I like gooey blondies...but I don't like eating raw blondie batter, and that's what I got. I think that perhaps replacing the shortening with all butter would help, but I think I'll just go with a different recipe next time. I don't think I would make these again.
