Best Blondies in the World

The first time I had these blondies was a few weeks ago at a friend's house and they served them for dessert, warm out of the oven with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top. I was in heaven. They were rich in flavor and buttery and I knew I needed to make them myself. Fast forward 2 weeks: a girlfriend of mine was over and we made the same blondies, exactly as our friend had, and watched an awesomely terrible, horrible, no good, very bad Hallmark original movie. It was a perfect night. This is now my go-to blondie recipe. Out with the old, in with the new!

1 cup (4 oz) pecans
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
12 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and cooled slightly
1 1/2 cups brown sugar, packed
2 large eggs, beaten
4 teaspoons vanilla extract
3 oz white chocolate chips
3 oz semi-sweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spread the nuts on a baking shit and bake until golden brown (~10 minutes, give or take). Cool nuts and chop coarsely. Set aside.

Meanwhile, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt, in a medium bowl and set aside.

In a large bowl whisk together the butter, brown sugar, eggs, and vanilla and beat until incorporated. Using a rubber spatula, fold the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients; do not overmix. Fold in the chocolate and nuts and pour batter into an aluminum foil-line (and lightly greased) 9x13 pan. Smooth the top with a spatula and bake for about 20-25 minutes. Do not overbake. These are so delicious and buttery, and you want them gooey. Remove from oven and let cool slightly. Cut into squares are eat!
