  1. 1

    Prep blondie dough

    • Pro Tip: Leave butter and eggs at room temperature for 1 hour before beginning. This will soften butter for easy mixing and ensure more even distribution of eggs in the dough.
    • In medium bowl, stir together flour, baking powder and salt.
    • In bowl of stand mixer with paddle attachment or in large bowl with wooden spoon, combine butter and brown sugar; mix until creamy and well incorporated.
    • Add eggs and vanilla; mix well.
    • Add flour mixture and mix well. Add pecans (if using) and chocolate chips; mix for 30 seconds to thoroughly blend dough.
