Brown Butter Blondies are a family favorite recipe that are an easy to make dessert.

Brown Butter Blondies are a chocolate chip cookie meets brownies! These are a favorite recipe for dessert, snack, Super Bowl, and Christmas from Serena Bakes Simply From Scratch.


Last week I was in charge of dessert at our Life Group and I knew something chocolaty was in order. I was going to make a batch of Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookies, but I wasn't in the mood to scoop cookies so I decided Brown Butter Blondies were it.

Brown Butter Blondies have gone crazy on Pinterest and you can read addition reviews here

I love blondies because they are like a brownie but blonde. With the flavor of brown sugar, and vanilla. With a crispy edge, and soft gooey chewy center.

What's not to love?

I actually had to make a second pan of these because we devoured them before I was able to have Colt take a photo.  Let me tell you just how disappointed Colt and the kids were that I had to make a second pan for them to enjoy.

The minute the kids walked through the door they headed straight to the pan of Blondies and started begging for a square.

I also believe Colt may have eaten over half of the blondies out of the center before taking a picture because somehow only 3 center bars remained...

I'm still trying to figure that one out.

  6. Hi there, these are amazing. Just wondering if you've ever tried them with just melted butter. I want to make a huge batch and don't have time to brown it. Would it work? Thanks again for the great recipe.

    1. Browning allows for the water in the butter to evaporate and also is what contributes to the flavor. It would work not to, but the flavor will change.

    1. I would probably just do 2 pans at 9x13 other wise you would probably need a 1/2 sheet cake pan thats about 2" deep. You would have to watch the bake time to figure out the time adjustments. Thanks, Serena
