5 stars from 1 rating of White Chocolate and Butterscotch Blondies


Blondies are commonly described as the albino cousins of brownies. Brown sugar is used and they are more buttery.

I was originally using the recipe from but since then, I have added in my own variations for my personal taste preference. Also, with this recipe you can use it to make cookies, too.

The meringue powder and egg whites keeps the recipe from being too fudge-like if you don't like that texture. Blondies are meant to be chewy but for the cookies, use egg whites or the meringue powder instead. I ended up having to use the meringue powder one day when I realized I had no eggs or egg whites readily available so that's how I came across using it in the recipe. Don't be alarmed, however, they still come out moist and chewy enough; not dry like a hard cookie. They will still be soft and moist like a brownie as long as you watch the oven closely during the cooking time.

I also don't always add in the vanilla extract and the recipe still tastes great.

Blondies are great to bake for those who love adding in their own tastes preference (or for taking out ingredients). Many people enjoy blondies with chopped walnuts and regular chocolate chips. My husband is allergic to all nuts so we leave that out of everything. It's all about preference (and allergies) so make it your way! They are one of my favorite treats to whip up when I need a sugar fix or need to make some baked goods for gifts or an event/party (I baked it for Mother's Day) so give this recipe a try, it may become one of your favorites, too.

Happy baking!

Instead of the usual blondie/brownie bars, use a cookie cutter to make different shapes.  I used a 9x9 pan to spread the batter in and cut them with the cookie cutter after it cooled.
