TWD - Peanuttiest Blondies
This treat, of course, is blondies. I'd never even been tempted by a blondie until earlier this year when we made Chewy, Chunky Blondies. With this latest recipe, I've gone from convert to fanatic.
I made a couple of flavour changes to the recipe. Because I didn't have any salted peanuts, I used chopped hazelnuts. I wanted their flavour to come through, so I left out the cinnamon. I was very happy (twice!) with the results. The hazelnuts were delicious and held their own with the chocolate chips.
Here's my cooking tip: Dorie suggested lining the pan with a foil sling to ease the removal of the blondies from the pan. The first time I baked these, the edges were very well done. So the second time I made them, I folded over the foil to protect the edges. The whole pan came out a lovely even toasted brown.

Here's a final photo of my Fall garden. There's a hidden bench at the back where no one can see me eat my treats. Sshh...don't tell the children...
