Brown Butter Chocolate Chip Blondies

1 1/4 cups (2 1/2 sticks) unsalted butter, plus more for pan
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for pan
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
2 cups packed light-brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
3 large eggs, room temperature
2 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
1 cup chocolate chips

1. Butter a 9-by-13-inch baking pan. Line bottom of pan with parchment paper; spray parchment paper.

2. In a saucepan over medium heat, cook the butter until it turns golden brown; remove from heat, and let cool. Whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt in a separate bowl.

3. In the bowl of an electric mixer, combine browned butter and both sugars; stir with a wooden spoon until combined. Attach bowl to mixer; add eggs. Using the paddle attachment, beat on medium-high speed until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add vanilla, and beat to combine. Add flour mixture, and chocolate chips. Mix until thoroughly combined, and spread into prepared pan.

4. Bake until a cake tester inserted in the center comes out clean, 35 to 40 minutes (do not over
bake) on 350 degrees. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely before turning out of pan onto a cutting board. Peel off parchment paper; cut blondies into 3-inch squares. Blondies can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature up to 3 days.

  1. Thanks for passing by Far Above Rubies. Your blog is lovely. I can't wait to browse through all your wonderful recipes.

    God bless you,


  2. Beautiful photos! The blondies look delicious!!

  3. Wow! These look soooo good. The picture is wonderful. My family has food allergies, but I bet I could switch out some of the ingredients. Of course, it won't be as good as the original recipe.

  4. I have these in the oven and cannot wait to eat them! Just wanted to let you know that your directions didn't have an oven temp. I guessed 350, but wanted to give you a heads up.

  5. Yes, it was 350! Thanks so much for telling me Carrie! I hadn't noticed I missed that! Fixing now...
