1/4 tsp

1 tsp

10 Tbsp

2 c
light brown sugar, packed
3
eggs, lightly beaten

MAPLE SAUCE

2 Tbsp
unsalted butter
1 1/2 c
heavy cream
6 Tbsp
real maple syrup
3 Tbsp
light corn syrup
optional vanilla bean ice cream

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
2
In a medium bowl, sift together flour, salt & baking powder. Set aside.
3
In another large mixing bowl, mix melted butter with brown sugar until well-blended. Add in beaten eggs and vanilla. Stir well.
4
Slowly add flour mixture to butter, sugar and egg mixture. Stir thoroughly but do not overmix your batter. Fold in white chocolate chips. Batter will be thick.
5
Spray pan with nonstick cooking spray, then pour batter into 9 x 13 baking pan. Bake for about 25-30 minutes (until a toothpick inserted comes out clean).
6
For the sauce:
Melt butter in a medium sauce pan over medium heat (do not allow butter to burn). Then add heavy cream, maple syrup and corn syrup. Allow this mixture to simmer over medium heat for about 20-30 minutes.
Wait for the mixture to reduce and thicken. Do not let it boil, just a nice bubbly simmer. Stir it occasionally. Once it has reduced by about a 1/3, it’s ready.
7
To serve: you can heat up blondie on a cast iron skillet and serve with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream or you can just heat a slice of blondie on a plate in your microwave for about 25 seconds. Add a scoop of ice cream on top then pour the warm maple sauce on top and sprinkle with chopped pecans.
8
The Country Cook recommends doubling the sauce, and I must agree after having tried it. YUM! Also, she suggests lowering oven temperature to 325 degrees F. if using a glass pan.
