I've made Blondies a few times before, but this has to be the best recipe of all. While I wanted to be able to share them with my daughter, she does not like coconut, and since I wanted to make these cookies just once with all the required ingredients, I waited until she left town. (She's on an Alaskan cruise with her best friend.)
Without the coconut, I believe my daughter would really enjoy these cookies.
I ended up using unsweetened coconut (toasted), chocolate chips, walnuts, and toffee bits..
My cookie dough was nice and thick.
Unlike a few other TWD bakers, I had no issues with the baking process. It only took about 5 extra minutes until the knife came out clean, and the cookies didn't sink while they cooled.
I did only make half a recipe, using an 8" x 8" pan that I lined with non-stick aluminum foil.
When the main cookie was cooled, I cut it into 24 Blondies. Each piece was packed with all the add-ins, creating a really rich flavor experience.
Thanks to Nicole of Cookies on Fridays for an easy, delicious cookie choice. I haven't made Blondies in years because I was never thrilled with the recipe. Now, they will go back on my list.
If you want the recipe, head on over to Nicole's blog, and, while you're at it, stop by the Tuesdays with Dorie site to read about the other bakers' adventures.
