Salted Maple Butterscotch Blondies: An Argument For Going Blond

Brownies might get most of the glory, but take one bite of these salted maple-butterscotch blondies, and you'll likely go blond the next time a craving for a chewy bar cookie hits. Butter-rich and full of nutty nibbles, they're a sweet ending to any meal.

Salted Butterscotch Blondies With Maple-Butter Sauce


For the blondies:
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/8 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon flaky sea salt, such as Maldon
1/3 cup butter, melted
1 cup packed light brown sugar
1 large egg, at room temperature
1 tablespoon vanilla bean paste
1/2 cup pecans, finely chopped
1/4 cup white chocolate chips
1/4 cup butterscotch morsels

For the maple sauce:
1/2 cup butter
2 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
1/2 cup powdered sugar
2 tablespoons maple syrup

Butter pecan ice cream, optional


  1. Make the blondies: Preheat oven to 350°F. Line an 8-by 8-inch baking dish with parchment paper, leaving a 2-inch overhang on two sides; spray with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.
  3. In a large bowl, mix together the melted butter and brown sugar. Add the egg and vanilla, and mix until combined. Add the flour mixture a little at a time until just combined. Fold in the pecans, white chocolate chips, and butterscotch morsels.
  4. Transfer to the parchment-lined baking dish, spreading the batter out evenly, and bake for about 20 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean when inserted. Allow to cool before cutting into 16 squares.
  5. Make the maple sauce: In a small sauce pot, melt the butter. Add the softened cream cheese, and whisk to combine. Whisk in the powdered sugar until smooth. Add maple syrup, and mix.
  6. To serve, pour warm sauce over each blondie, and top with a scoop of butter pecan ice cream (if using).

Awesome. My family absolutely loves them. I didn't have the flaky sea salt( used kosher salt instead) they still turned out fantastic. Will definitely make these again.
