Yum, yum, yum! I’m at home and I have a lot of work to do. I’m a teacher. As my friend Cara put it: “yea, your job never ends.”
But I don’t want to do it…so I go to Pinterest to see what I want to cook this coming week so I can make a grocery list. You see, I used to be on Pinterest WAY TOO OFTEN. So now I have tons of stuff pinned! But in the past 6 months or so, I haven’t really pinned much, I mostly just go there to make, do, and use all of the pins I have already! It’s so great.
So, I ended up on my dessert board somehow, and wanted to bake something all of a sudden. I needed to find something I already had all the ingredients for – and there it was! Peanut Butter Blondies!
They turned out SO GOOD and they were delightfully easy to make, so I wanted to share with y’all! Even the edges are delicious, which is totally key. They are soft in the middle – so perfect!
So, here you go!
To make the peanut butter blondies, you will need:
- ½ cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted
- 1 cup light brown sugar
- 1 large egg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- ½ cup peanut butter
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
Here’s what you do:
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees
- Spray 8×8 baking dish cooking spray. Just let that wait, now…
- In a large bowl (I used my Kitchen Aid with my scraper bowl attachment), combine the melted butter and light brown sugar. Mix thoroughly.
- Add in the egg and vanilla extract.
- Mix in the peanut butter and make sure all of the wet ingredients are thoroughly mixed.
- Add in the salt and flour.
- Spread the batter in the baking dish and spread out evenly with a plastic spatula.
- Bake for 20-25 minutes or until a tooth pick inserted in the middle comes out clean. I set my timer for 20 minutes, but it wasn’t quite done. So I set the timer for 5 more minutes…but I was busy when the timer went off, so it was more like 27 minutes.
- Let it cool A LOT before you cut it. It can be a little bit warm, but don’t do it when it’s still so hot or else they will fall apart.
- Enjoy with a glass of milk!
This can maybe show you how thick the batter is….when you put it in, it’s in a big pile and you just have to spread it around.
I had to spread it smoothly before it went into the oven…
Because as soon as it comes out, it has the same pattern as when you put it in! Well, I can see it. Pretty cool.
My first taste was delicious….I love my little pig spatula!
