About Me

My photo

Life is beautiful whether you're soaking in sunshine or caught in a thunderstorm. I take the beauty of life for granted too often. I have a supportive husband who I don't want to live life without, a beautiful son who is always reminding me of the simple things that really matter, and an independent daughter who is teaching me to throw schedules out the window and live in the moment. My day is made when free samples fill my mailbox. I love discovering a new product and sharing it with others. I'm addicted to coupons and every penny counts. I hope you will enjoy reading my posts and will share your success stories with me as well.

Raspberry Blondies Recipe

Oh My Goodness!  As soon as I saw this recipe in a magazine, I knew I had to try it!  It's one of those desserts you could seriously eat the entire pan by yourself.  You must try these delicious Raspberry Blondies!

 Ingredients:
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 stick unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/ cup finely chopped almonds
  • 1 cup fresh raspberries

Directions:
  • Preheat over to 350 degrees.  Line an 8-inch square baking pan with aluminum foil, leaving at least 1 inch overhang on all sides.
  • In a small bowl combine flour, baking powder, and salt.  Melt butter in a medium saucepan over low heat.  Stir in brown sugar until moistened.  Let cool slightly.  Off heat, whisk in egg and vanilla.  Stir in flour mixture until just combined.  Stir in almonds.
  • Scrape batter into baking pan, smoothing top with spatula.  Scatter raspberries over batter.  Bake until blondies are set in center, about 30-40 minutes.  Cool completely in pan on wire rack.  
  • Grasping overhanging foil on opposite sides of pan, lift out blondies and place on cutting board.  Cut into 16 squares and serve.
Tip:  For easier cutting, cover and refrigerate blondies for at least an hour before slicing into bars.
