Delicious, melt-in-the-mouth Brown butter Blondies are perfect to make during the holidays. Also great to give as edible holiday gifts.
December means holidays and holidays means baking. So some of us, food bloggers, are doing this ‘Bake-a-thon’ event this month. Valli, our dear leader and organizer is the brain behind this event. So we will be posting 3 yummy bakes every week. First up are these absolutely delicious brown butter blondies.Bake-a-thon is one of the yearly blogging events I look forward to. I made these blondies to take to a pot luck Halloween party in October. Recipe is from Food52. Blondies are fair colored cousins of brownies. They probably originated during World War II due to the need to bake without rationed ingredients like chocolate and white sugar.
This brown butter blondie recipe is made almost entirely in the saucepan. One of the comments on the recipe mentioned using brown butter. So I went ahead and used browned butter to make these blondies. Brown butter is an amazing secret ingredient that enhances the flavor of any dish, sweet or savory, that it is added to.
Making brown butter is quite easy, just melt butter until lightly browned in color and smells aromatic and nutty. It is almost like making ghee but doesn’t take as much time to make it. This can be used to make various dishes like pasta sauces, desserts etc.If you haven’t tried browned butter before, this is the perfect recipe to try. Make these for holidays, I am sure you will love it.
