In the past I have been leery of making recipes from Martha Stewart’s website. I’ve heard they are notorious for having problems, but I have only had one issue out of all that I have made. I’ve heard great things about her cookies, so I knew I wanted to try these. Luckily, I found a winner with these brown butter blondies.
I only changed things a little, substituting pecans for the walnuts and chocolate covered toffee bits for plain toffee bits. I also tossed those toffee bits and pecans with the dry ingredients before combining everything. I adjusted the instructions to reflect straining off the little dark brown crud that accumulates at the bottom of the saucepan if you brown your butter a bit too much. Tee hee.
Are these yummy? Yes they are! These are great lunch box treats too, so I’ll be adding them to the kids’ lunches tomorrow. The browned butter adds a wonderful caramel flavor to these, I’ll definitely make them again. :) So for now, way to go Martha. I know sometimes you get a bad rap, but this time you did okay. ;)
