Blondies that will Knock Your Socks Off!

So, I've recently stumbled upon a Freezer Cooking recipe that is absolutely ridiculous. How often can you pull soft, delectable, chewy bar cookies out of the freezer? At our house, the answer is about once a day for 4 days. They don't last long! [Though, we don't really have any will power either. heh.]


2 3/4 c. brown sugar
15 TB butter
1/2 tsp. salt
2 tsp. baking pd.
3 c. flour
5 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
2 c. chocolate chips
1 1/2 c. walnuts

  1. Combine butter and brown sugar in heavy sauce pan.

  2. Cook until sugar is dissolved and mixture begins to boil remove from heat.

  3. Mix butter, brown sugar, with spoon, until cool

  4. Add eggs and vanilla mix on first speed

  5. Sift dry ingredients.  Add to mixer. [Or for those of us without a Kitchen-Aid *sob* elbow grease it is!]

  6. Add nuts and chocolate chips till combined.

  7. Spread batter in greased/sprayed/floured rectangular pan.

  8. Bake @350 approximately 25-30 minutes. (Jessica calls this-until GBD-golden, brown and delicious)

Note: This recipe is courtesy of Jessica McGuire, an extremely talented chef attending JWU Culinary Institute. It is also adjusted for altitudes around 7000ft, but I made it at around 4500ft. The extra butter & brown sugar are what make them chewy and wonderful even when they're cold. The only change for lower altitudes is reducing the butter a little bit, but it's up to you!

Sidenote #1: When we were down to one last bag of these blondies, C looked over at me in desperation and said, "K! Make me stop!" Then, the entire bag went down the chute. Sometimes I think willpower is over-rated.

Sidenote #2: This may be the only treat that makes it past our becoming-a-chiropractic-family lifestyle change. (More on that later.)


  1. I only have pecans on hand but I think I'll be making these tonight! I'll let you know how they turn out.


  2. [...] love discovering new blogs and today I stumbled across the cutest blog called Call Me Kristin. Specifically, it was a post with a recipe for freezer Blondies that hooked me and within 30 [...]

  3. Hey Kristin! So looking forward to making these soon! Do you cut the blondies into bars before freezing them? Thanks!

  4. Hey Bonnie!
    Yeah, I cut them first and then put them in ziploc bags and attempt to hide as many of the bags as possible in the back of the freezer. If yours last longer than a week, let me know your secret!
