If you happened to be having a particularly bad day and don't want to nosh on something pretentiously thin, yet you don't want to go completely dark side by strolling down the brownie path, blondies are the perfect alternative. They're baby bear's porridge, the perfect medium. Of course in times of desperation, you can merge the unholy trinity, cookie+brownie+blondie bar. But that force of nature should be set aside for apocalyptic conditions, flat tires, frizzy hair, and no-longer-zippable skinny jeans (though the latter may be due to the topic of discussion.)
This weeks simple, irresistible Tuesdays with Dorie recipe was chosen by Nicole, of Cookies on Friday. Thank you, Nicole! You ended this month on an easy, blithe note. These blondies are thick, chewy, rich, and have the perfect amount of crunchy, nutty texture. But proceed with caution and try not to take one while they're still basking in warmth from the oven...if that happens, you may discover that one is simply not enough. No amount of running or Pilates will make up for that sin, but while you're indulging in it, you won't even care. :)
