Chocolate Chip Blondies

These babies were the sweetness to the otherwise sour and rainy day we had yesterday. 

My first time was a success! (Yes... I'm nearly 34 and haven't ever made scratch blondies, before...)

They were so simple! No odd ingredients, so I had everything required already tucked away in my pantry. I LOVE when that happens. These are definitely a new go-to.

3/4 cup melted, unsalted butter
1 cup brown sugar
Mix together. 

Add 2 eggs.
Mix until just combined. 

Pour in about 1.5 cups of flour,
1 tsp baking powder, and
1/4 tsp salt.
Mix again. 

1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp almond extra
1 cup chocolate chips
Pour into dough and mix until just combined.

Line a 9x9 inch baking pan with parchment paper and spread your batter. Top with a few more chocolate chips, cause you know... chocolate! 

(If you used clothespins, too, to hold down the parchment paper, remove them before the next step!)

 Bake at 350°F for about 25 minutes. 
(I started checking after 17 and put back in 2 minutes at a time until the blondies stopped "jiggling.")

Set them on your counter for about 7 minutes, while still in the dish. The heat will continue to bake the edges without crisping them up too much.
Then remove the blondies, while still on the parchment paper, and set on your counter until cooled. 
Slice into 12 or 16 treats.

My husband passed on a restaurant dessert for these! Yeah, they were that good!
