I know what you’re thinking: “Hey, these are not brownies!”  Well, technically, brownies are dense and chewy– sometimes cake-like, and they are typically chocolate flavored.  Blondies, on the other hand, are vanilla-based, butterscotch-flavored brownies.  They are sometimes referred to as “blonde brownies,” thus their blondie name.

I happen to love them both.

These are a delightful blonde brownie recipe. Their crinkly tops make them unique.  And they’re perfectly dense and chewy.  Just the right amount of macadamia nuts and chocolate chips are added in.  I’m not always the biggest fan of chocolate, so these are just about perfect for me.
