lucky blondies

May 13, 2011
It's Friday.
Even more, it's Friday the thirteenth.
Fridays happen to be my favorite day of the week and thirteen happens to be my favorite number, so it's definitely a lucky day. Even luckier if you make someone these blondies! 

Cranberry Chocolate Chip Blondies
1/2 cup butter, room temperature
1 cup brown sugar (I used golden brown)
1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs
2 1/2 cups flour
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
2 cups chocolate chips (I used half white/ half milk chocolate)
1 cup cranberries
  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees and line a 9 X13 baking pan with parchment paper. Set aside. 
  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer, whip butter until fluffy. Add sugar and cream until smooth. Beat for about 5 minutes. 
  3. Add eggs and vanilla and mix until incorporated. 
  4. In a separate bowl, mix together flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda. Add the dry ingredients to the butter mixture and mix until smooth dough forms. 
  5. Fold in chocolate chips and cranberries by hand. Pour dough into middle of baking pan and smooth with a spatula. 
  6. Bake at 325 for about 30 minutes or until top is golden brown. 
  7. Remove and let cool in pan for 5 minutes. Using the parchment paper, life from the pan and let cool another 20 minutes on a baking rack. Cut into squares and serve!

hey, thank you for sharing this, those blondies look really yum, but you did not mention how much flour in the ingredients, could you please add it ? I can't wait to try them.
