Months and months ago I came across a recipe for Pantry Blondies at Let’s Dish. I bookmarked it, forgot about it, and then had a chocolate craving. I wasn’t in the mood for cookies, so I dug out the recipe for Pantry Blondies and gave it a go. I had never made Blondies until now, but they were so easy, and, as the name implied, used thing from my pantry. I’ll definitely be making these again.
On a quick side note, I did try (and fail) at another recipe this week: Shoo Fly Pie from the Amish Cook’s Baker’s Book. I must admit I was curious, because in nearly every Amish fiction book, there is Shoo Fly Pie. So, I gave it a go, took a bite, it was absolutely awful, so I double checked the recipe, figured out that I did do everything correctly, and threw the rest in the trash. Disappointing. But, there are several more yummy recipes that caught my eye in the cookbook, which overall is fantastic. I guess it was already doomed to fail since I don’t like molasses much, and that seems to be a main ingredient. The children and I could barely put the recipe together without holding our noses!
Okay, so wanted to share that fun story with you…
And on to the recipe:
1 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease an 8-inch square baking pan. Combine flour, baking powder and salt in a medium bowl. Melt the butter in a large saucepan over low heat; remove from heat. Alternately, butter can be melted in a microwaveable bowl. Stir brown sugar into melted butter until it is dissolved. Quickly whisk in the egg and vanilla. Stir in the flour mixture until just incorporated. Stir in chocolate chips. Spread the batter into the prepared baking pan. Bake for 25-30 minutes.
And I also wanted to share with you two recipes that caught my eye from last week’s Dr. Laura’s Tasty Tuesday.
Congratulations on being featured, and feel free to add my featured button to your blog:
First, Tacos in a Sleeping Bag from Veggie Converter 365. Because I love tacos, and because I thought serving them in small sleeping bags was a great description. I plan on doing meat in mine, but loved the idea!
Second, Cheesy Meatloaf from the Prairie Homestead. Because my husband LOVES meatloaf, and I don’t, so Jill’s promise that even the most staunch meatloaf haters will love this recipe caught my attention. It’s on tap to be made at our home so I can test out Jill’s claims
