3 Weeks Later……I’m back~Look I am so sorry and I apologize for not posting~its just~that~after I’ve posted 128 recipes  (this would be my 129th) its getting really difficult to not sounding like a broken record with every post I publish~I dont know how Real~legitimate~Foodie Bloogers do it~When I started this blog~It was to expand my creativeness in the kitchen~and now Lately I been struggling in that department but~not to worry~you readers of mind~I am slowly getting it back~just bare with me here. I know Ive made a lot of blondies in my days (even though I’m 27 LOL not old) My Brown butter blondies are proabbly one of my top 5 favorites~a slight nutty~with a hints of orange zest all throughout this chewy concoctions is delightfully divine~gods would praise and die for these blondies because they are so good~with white chocolate chips~just gives it that nice milky white chocolate taste and some turbinado sugar that gives it a slight crunch when you take a bite~Yes~Other than nuts~I was actually surprise by the crunch~I would have thought that the sugars would have melted in with the batter but~it just enhances the appeal for these blondies~with flake of that nutty brown butter goodness and the fresh orange zest~now if you want you can omit the blondies and it will be just as divine with out it. Make a batch today and share~or not share~honestly~I made these for myself and I might only give my husband a small square LOL~


Brown Butter Orange Scented Blondies

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 25 minutes

Total Time: 40 minutes

Yield: 12 Bars


  • 2 Sticks unsalted butter
  • 2 Cups all purpose flour

  1. Melt butter in a medium size sauce pan, let his cook on medium heat for 3-4 minutes, watching carefully stirring with a wooden spoon (it will foam and spatter, thats ok) the nutty aroma will start and when you see brown bits on the bottom start forming and the color of the butter is not golden but light brown, transfer to a bowl and let it cool for 15 minutes.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees, butter an 8x8 inch baking pan like with buttered parchment paper that over hangs on the sides.Set aside. In a bowl mix together flour,salt and white chocolate chips, set aside, in another bowl, mix together brown butter, sugar and vanilla, add the eggs and mix till combined, fold the flour in till yo us see no more flour streaks, and transfer to the pan evenly~bake in the oven for 25-30 minutes ( I bake mine for 25) or till the sides are slightly golden but the middle and is set and soft when touch, transfer to a cooling rack and let it cool completely on the pan before cutting.
