Pecan Chocolate Chip Scotch Blondies

There’s a lot going on in the name of this, I admit but it’s very descriptive and very accurate.  These are blondies, with pecans, chocolate chips and yummy scotch in them.  What else would I call them?  And by the way, they’re delicious!

I’ve started to gravitate more to blondies than brownies lately.  You still get plenty of chocolate but you’re not overwhelmed by chocolate and nothing else.  Here, you get to taste all the ingredients (including the base dough which is simple but also absolutely delicious.  And while there’s a decent amount of scotch in there, don’t be put off – it’s not overwhelming and adds just a little touch of flavor.

Try them!

Ingredients

·        2 cups dark brown sugar

·        1 t baking powder

·        ½ t salt

·        1 cup melted butter

·        ¼ cup scotch (I used Macallan)

·        1 ½ t vanilla

·        2 eggs, brought to room temperature

·        2 cups flour

·        1 ½ cups semisweet chocolate chips

·        1 ½ cups chopped pecans

Directions

This is actually a really simple recipe.  Let’s do this.

Line a 13” x 9” baking pan with aluminum foil and set that aside.

In a bowl, pour the brown sugar, baking powder and salt and whisk that until they’re well combined.  Add in the butter and mix with a hand mixer until just combined.  Then add in the scotch and vanilla and mix that until its just combined.  Finally, add in the eggs one at a time, mixing until will combined.

Because even when you’re using it as an ingredient, you should use decent materials. The same goes for cooking with wine – don’t use cheap crap!!!!

Now, add in the flour and mix that until well combined.  You’re done with the hand mixer now – you can take out the beaters and put the base away.

Stir in the chocolate chips and 1 cup of the pecans and then spread the batter into the lined baking pan.  Finally, sprinkle the remaining half cup of pecans on the top.

Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes, or until it’s starting to get golden brown and a toothpick inserted in it comes out clean.  Cool the blondies completely in the pan, on a wire rack.  After the blondies have cooled, lift the blondies by the aluminum foil, get rid of the foil and, cut the blondies into individual pieces and enjoy!!
