Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 10x15 inch jellyroll pan.
  2. In a small bowl, combine flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside. In a large bowl, cream together the butter, white sugar, brown sugar, and vanilla until smooth. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, then stir in the flour mixture. Mix in chocolate chips, if desired. Spread the batter evenly into the prepared pan.
  3. Bake for 35 to 45 minutes in preheated oven. Cool in the pan on a wire rack. When completely cooled, cut into squares.

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.

I made as recipe states (no chocolate chips), though I only had to bake for 25 minutes in my small oven. I hate to say this, as I LOVE sweet, but these were too sweet, even for me! Texture was nice, but regrettably, I won't be making these again.

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! :)

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.

My 13 year old made these and they were really good. I left her to her own devices, she baked them in an 11 x 8 glass baking dish instead of the jellyroll pan. It took longer for them to bake, but they were chewy with a nice vanilla flavor. She didn't have chocolate chips. I'm not sure I would add them, it might be too rich and sweet, they are sweet without the chips, and would kill the notion of being vanilla. They were great just the way my daughter made them. Thanks!

I didn't have any chocolate,but was craving some brownies so I chose to make these...they were pretty good! I did cut out 1/4 cup of white sugar and increased the vanilla to 1 tblespn. I also used shortening instead of butter, cooked for 25 minutes and viola! perfect!

Okay...I must be the only person in the world that tried this recipe and didn't like it. They were too dry, too hard...too bland. Even made a second batch thinking I had messed up the first one. But that is just my opinion.
