When you can’t decide between a brownie and a cookie, blondies are your girl.
Suggested Knife: Paring Knife
1 Preheat the oven to 350℉ (177°).
2 Line an 8-inch (20-cm) square baking pan with aluminum foil or parchment paper. Spray the foil or parchment with nonstick cooking spray.
3 In a large mixing bowl, stir together the melted butter and brown sugar. Add the egg and the vanilla and mix well.
4 In a separate bowl, combine the salt, baking powder, baking soda, and flour. Stir the flour mixture into the butter-sugar mixture. Mix just until all the ingredients are well-incorporated.
5 Stir in most of the chips (reserve about ½ cup) and mix well.
6 Pour the batter into the prepared baking pan and spread it evenly in the bottom of the pan. Top the batter with the reserved chips.
7 Bake the brownies for about 20 minutes, or until they begin to turn golden brown. Do not overbake.
8 Remove the brownies from the oven. Cool completely before cutting into 9 squares.
