This is my recipe for blondies (its from a baking cookbook by a certain well-known lady) but my recipe calls for no salt and turns out perfectly, add toffee bits instead of chocolate chips for an extra special treat. Perfect for non-chocolate lovers Read More

These are great. They have a crisp outer shell and a gooey center. The reason I'm not giving it 5 stars is the salt, if you use a full tsp they are way too salty, I use 1/4 tsp and they turn out perfectly. Read More

This recipe as written is doubled. When using this recipe cut the ingredients in half. Will still make a lot of bars for your family or group. These are really sweet too so you'll probably want to cut down even more on the amount of sugar. An excellent recipe just way too much. We add shredded coconut to our bars. Read More

I doubled the recipe. I did have to lower the temperature to 325 and let it cook for about 40 minutes. Otherwise it was overcooked on the top and completely undercooked underneath. Everyone loved them. Very easy recipe takes about 5 minutes to whip together. Read More

I reduced the salt to 1/4 teaspoon as others suggested and since I was low on brown sugar, I used 1/4 c. of brown sugar and 1 1/2 c. white sugar. I also didn't have mini chips, just regular size. They look and taste wonderful! Read More

This recipe isn't reliable. I've tried to make it 3 times and only once did it turn out half way decent... the other two times it was really dense and rubbery almost. It seemed like there was too much brown sugar in it maybe. Read More

these turned out great. if they didn't turn out for you you probably used self rising flour and that will not work! Read More

These tasted amazing. I sprinkled them with peanut butter and chocolate chips. I only gave it four stars because of presentation--the outsides of the brownies baked nicely but the middle was still pretty gooey and flat maybe because of the chips on top. Read More
