The first time I ever had a Blondie was at Applebees. They bring it in this sizzling mini cast-iron pan and then they pour a cream cheese sauce over it and it sizzles right in front of you! How exciting!
…except I wanted to dig right in and it was so hot… I burned my tongue. Which, of course, doesn’t help me in the flavor department because then I couldn’t really taste much after that. So my first experience with a blondie… overall… not that impressed.
But when I stumbled upon some Blondie recipes recently, I could see where these might have some potential for this summer!
And boy did this work out… I’m loving this white gooey dough with fruit combo!!
Especially because I already had these delicious blueberries in my fridge! And then I had Aaron stop at the store to grab some white chocolate chips on his way home from work because I had to make these pronto!
Definitely made a great desert last night… and, um… breakfast this morning… :D
So without further ado…
Blueberry Blondie Recipe:
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 cup sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1 large egg
2 tsp vanilla
1 cup flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 cups blueberries
1 cup white chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350F. Prep a brownie pan. (I used a 9×9, but I think other sizes would work depending on how thick you want these babies!)
In a bowl, whisk together butter and sugar until combined. Whisk in salt, egg, and vanilla until combined. Stir in flour and baking soda until you can’t see any dry ingredient streaks. Fold in blueberries and white chocolate chips. (try to not break up the blueberries too much otherwise you will end up with grey/purple ish dough instead of the nice creamy white)
Transfer dough to prepped pan and evenly distribute.
Bake for 35-40 minutes until they start to turn golden on top and toothpick comes out clean.
I enjoyed these pretty much straight out of the oven, and then room temp the next day… great both ways! I could definitely see serving this up with some vanilla ice cream when they are fresh out of the oven!
So go enjoy some yourself! I think I’ll be trying some different fruit combos soon, because it’s like cobbler… in bar form… with very few dishes! :D
