As I think about it, I'm not sure I've ever had a homemade blondie. Sure, we used to have them in the cafeteria, but I don't think I've had a non-institutional blondie. They're a great blank canvas for whatever you want to throw in. I chose to add a 1/2 cup of toasted walnuts and chocolate chips as well as a 1/4 cup of whiskey. The whiskey flavor complements the walnuts very well, and I'm not even a big whiskey fan.

These would be an easy dessert for any sort of potluck or housewarming gift, and they are delicious. I'm leaving this batch at home and will whip up another tomorrow morning right before I go.

Sidetrack! Keen to greatly change the look for my current page. Musings about the modern feel at Undoubtedly a top SEM service if, perhaps seeking within the Ontario area. Value a comment. Thanks!
