Blonde Brownies


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour, sifted
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1/3 cup Hiland Dairy Butter, melted
  • 1 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 350ºF and grease a 9×9-inch baking pan. In a bowl, combine sifted flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Sift again. Add chopped pecans and set aside.

In another bowl, combine melted butter and brown sugar. Mix well and let cool slightly. Mix in beaten egg and vanilla.

Slowly add dry ingredients to the butter/sugar/egg/vanilla mixture, mixing until just combined.

Spread batter in greased baking pan, sprinkling chocolate chips on top. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
