  • Summary

    Blondies are one of the simplest, tastiest baked goods you can make. These blondies are perfectly dense with a paper-thin crinkly top and taste like deep, rich buttery caramel. If you have it, use dark brown sugar. Light brown sugar works, but the flavor will not be as rich. Feel free to customize this recipe to your liking — add chocolate, nuts, dried fruit or whatever else you adore. We’ve shared suggested amounts in the recipe below.

    Ingredients

    • 8 tablespoons (115 grams or 1 stick) unsalted butter, melted
    • 1 cup (215 grams) lightly packed dark brown sugar
