Chocolate Chip Pecan Blondies

It’s that time again when hubby informs me that I’ve been delegated to bake something for the badminton home match this evening. I really love being able to do this and any excuse to bake makes me happy. It also gives me the opportunity to try new recipes, I might as well get use of the lovely books I buy, rather than them sitting on the bookshelf looking pretty and gathering dust! As you all know this week I’ve enjoyed baking some nice treats from my new book, The Good Cookie by Tish Boyle, the book is full of page after page of amazing recipes, which makes you want to bake them all. So on my task to find a crowd pleaser, I came across the recipe for these Chocolate Chip Pecan Blondies and I thought this is just the thing, as it cuts up into bars and feeds a big crowd of hungry badminton players! As baker’s privileges, I get to be the first to sample the goods and these Blondies are wonderful, chewy on top, with a moist sponge that is bursting with flavour.

Do blondies have more fun? This blonde does ;o) And I have a feeling that the badminton players will be thinking blondes are definitely more fun, hehehe.

Your Blondies look scrumptious as do the Chocolate Chip cookies!! I'm heading over to Amazon to look for Tish's book. You've inspired me, Maria. :)

Lea, thanks! I'm glad I've inspired you to check Tish's book out ;o)
