Cookies and Cream Blondies

IMG_0833-3

I saw these, and waited. I waited for an opportunity to make them for others. Sometimes a recipe appears on my blog-roll that I want to make in order to share with other people…because I think it will be that good. Oh, and easy enough that I won’t arrive with store bought two-bite brownies.

My sister-in-law and her family were in town from Hong Kong and we were having a small get together. I claimed dessert.  Oh baby. These blondies were everything I hoped for…I mean…it’s a cookie…made with pieces of cookie. Need I say more?

Go make them. Call me.

 Ingredients
1 cup all-purpose flour
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
½ cup unsalted butter, softened
½ cup brown sugar, packed
¼ cup white sugar
1 large egg, at room temperature
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 heaping cup chopped Oreos
¼ to ½ cup white chocolate chips

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350F.  Line an 8×8 baking pan with greased parchment paper, in order to easily remove bars.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl (or bowl of a stand mixer), cream the butter and sugars. Add the egg and vanilla extract and beat until combined.
  4. With the beaters/mixer on low speed, add the dry ingredients in two steps. Do not over mix.
  5. Fold in the white chocolate chips and ¾ cup of the chopped Oreos.
  6. You’re now ready to bake! Transfer the dough to the baking pan and press into an even layer. The original poster suggested slightly damp fingertips; it worked like a charm to prevent sticking!
  7. Bake the beauties for 25-30 minutes, or until a toothpick finds a few moist crumbs after insertion.
  8. Allow the bars to cool completely in the pan before removing. Simply torture.
