Scotch Pecan Chocolate Chip Blondies

Sometimes you want to get your drink on, but also have something sweet.  For those of you who have been agonizing about one or the other, here’s your solution!

Granted, these won’t get you drunk – which is probably a good thing.  But you will taste the scotch and while it doesn’t overwhelm the blondie it does give it a nice little flavor boost.  Plus if you have kids it’s a great excuse for keeping all the desserts for yourself.

Ingredients

·        2 cups bark brown sugar

·        1 t baking powder

·        ½ t salt

·        1 cup (16 T) butter, either softened to room temperature or melted

·        ¼ cup scotch

·        2 t vanilla

·        2 eggs

·        2 cups flour

·        1 cup semisweet chocolate chips

·        1  cup chopped pecans, separated

Directions

Butter and flour a 9” x 13” baking pan and set it aside.

Pour the brown sugar, baking powder and salt into a large bowl and whisk until well combined.  Next, we’re going to add the ingredients one at a time, whisking each time until everything is well combined before adding the next ingredient.

Go in this order:

1.      Add in the butter and whisk

2.      Scotch, whisk

3.      Vanilla, whisk

4.      Egg #1, whisk

5.      Egg #2, whisk

It’s a lot of whisking.  Fortunately, you also have scotch.

Now onto the dry ingredients.  Add in the flour and mix that until everything is very well combined.  At this point, you’ll probably have to put away the whisk and move to a wooden spoon.  You probably won’t need a hand mixer.

After you’ve gotten the flour very well combined, add in the chocolate chips and pecans and stir until they’re pretty evenly distributed.IMG_2437

Pour your batter into your prepared pan and bake at 350 for about 30 minutes, or until the top is a nice golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out dry, with just a few crumbs on it.IMG_2438IMG_2443

Cool in the pan on a wire rack, cut into bars and serve!IMG_2453
