From the Kitchen: Blonde Brownies

"Blonde brownies". What does that mean? Do they have more fun than regular brownies? Why do they seem like chocolate chip bar cookies, but have a different name? Who knows, my friends. But they are called blonde brownies and they are delicious, so perhaps we had better stop asking questions and get baking...


1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/3 cup butter (melted)
1 egg
1 tbsp vanilla
2/3 cup semisweet chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 350. Grease and flour a 9x9 pan (or triple the recipe and use a roasting pan... 11x17?). Mix together butter and sugar. Add egg and vanilla. Mix dry ingredients, then add to butter mixture. Fold in the chocolate chips. Spread evenly in the prepared pan. Bake for 20-25 minutes, until center is set. Alternatively, you may bake these as cookies by dropping 1/4 cupfuls onto a pan and baking for 15-17 minutes at 325. But seriously, they're called "brownies"... let's just go with it this time :)
