Brown Butter White Chocolate Blondies


Wow, it has been a while since I wrote a post! A lot has happened over here at the Boyd household. Biggest happening is we moved! We bought a house in the burbs! We lived in Chicago for over 11 years and it was time to move on and get some space. So far we are loving it! The neighborhood is great and the neighbors are so nice, I’m glad everything worked out even during this pandemic! We sold our house for more than we expected and bought this house with money to spare 😉 Obviously I love Chicago so much and we will miss all our friends dearly, so at least we aren’t too far and can easily visit!

Ok, let’s talk about these brown butter blondies! Yum yum in your tum. If you’ve never made brown butter before it is a treat. It does take a lot longer than regular room temperature baking so just know that before going in. But I’m with you all the way! You won’t regret it I promise. So as always, read the entire recipe before starting and make sure you don’t burn that butter!

Let’s bake.

What you will need:

8 x 8 inch square bake dish, greased

1 1/2 sticks butter (3/4 cup)
1 cup light brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup white chocolate chips

In a saucepan, brown the butter over low heat. This takes about 10 minutes. The butter will melt, then boil and foam and then brown but once it browns it can burn quickly so you have to keep an eye on it! Once the butter is browned, set aside to cool to room temperature.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place the brown sugar in a medium bowl or mixing bowl. Beat the cooled brown butter and sugar until combined. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Slowly add in flour, baking powder and salt until combined. Fold in white chocolate chips.

Pour batter into prepared baking dish and bake for about 20 minutes or until edges are slightly brown. Allow to cool on a wire rack before cutting.


Store covered at room temp or in the fridge.
