Today I made blondies for the first time! I followed this recipe from Bakerella

Blondie Description: It's like chocolate chip cookie meets brownie. They fall madly in love. They procreate. And blondie is born.

2 3/4 cup all purpose flour
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup butter, softened (about 10-11 tablespoons)
1 lb. light brown sugar (2 1/4 cups)
3 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
11.5 ounce package milk chocolate chips
1 cup of M&Ms (optional)

By mixer:
Sift flour, baking powder and salt in a large bowl. Set aside
Combine butter and sugar using a mixer until blended.
Add eggs, one at a time to sugar mixture, mixing on low in between each addition.
Add vanilla and mix.
Add flour and mix until combined.
Stir in chips.

By hand:
Sift flour, baking powder and salt into a large bowl. Set aside.
Stir brown sugar into softened (not melted) butter in another large bowl until butter disappears. You can use the back of your spoon to help incorporate the two together (or your good ol' hands).
Add eggs one at a time to butter mixture and stir well after each egg.
Add vanilla and chocolate chips. Mix well.
Add dry flour mixture and stir until well combined.

Coat a 13 x 9 pan with non-stick spray and spread batter evenly into dish (I lined my dish with foil and then sprayed pan with non-stick spray). Sprinkle with M&Ms on top. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until top is golden brown. Make sure you don't over bake.
*Note* - My baking time ran closer to 45 minutes.
