#60 - Bourbon Blondies

We explained how we made bacon-bourbon brownies for Mikey's birthday due to his love for bacon and bourbon. The only problem is, Mikey's not a big fan of brownies, and he usually prefers blondies. We found a solution for that.

For a more appropriate birthday dessert, we made Mikey bourbon blondies. There's nothing in these ingredients he can find offensive - sugar, vanilla, butter, bourbon.
And this couldn't be easier. It's just mix, mix, mix, and bake.
Again, the verdict's still out on this one. Some people preferred the bacon brownies; others wanted seconds of these.

You could definitely taste the bourbon more in these blondies than in the brownies, and while it's hard to make the perfect brownie, so few people ever eat blondies, these are definitely gonna be one of the best you've had.
If you're not a big chocolate fan, cook up a batch of these:
  • 8 Tbs butter, melted
  • 1 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • Salt
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/4 cup bourbon
  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Butter an 8x8 glass pan.
  3. Beat melted butter with brown sugar until smooth.
  4. Beat in egg and then vanilla.
  5. Add salt, and stir in flour.
  6. Mix in bourbon.
  7. Pour batter into prepared pan.
  8. Bake until set in the middle, about 20-25 minutes.
  9. Cool completely on a rack and then cut into squares.
