If you are looking for some yummy treats to get yourself ready for the holiday, consider throwing together these Cranberry & White Chocolate Blondies. This morning I was ready to bake and bake some more, ha ha. I have never tried to make a blondie bar. Have you? If not, now is the time to give them a try. I am adoring this new recipe for sure!
Cranberry & White Chocolate Blondies
I love cranberries in many different recipes throughout the holiday season,. I am just not real fond of cranberry sauce (unless it is homemade of course). The hubby loves his canned cranberry sauce all season long (not just on Thanksgiving and Christmas). I personally love Cranberries and I love white chocolate. I am most excited to have the kiddos try these yummy Cranberry & white Chocolate Blondies when they arrive home from school today (in just a few short minutes). My daughter loves cranberries and I am sure going to ask why I did not add nuts just like dad did, ha ha. The nuts would have been a nice addition and not sure why I did not think to add them. Ok, maybe next time since this recipe is for sure being made again over the holidays. Have I mentioned that there are just a half pan left for the kiddos when they arrive?
3/4 cup softened Butter
1 1/2 cup Brown Sugar
3 tsp Vanilla
1 1/2 cup Flour
1 tsp Baking Powder
1/2 tsp Salt
1 cup Dried Cranberries
1 cup White Chocolate Morsels

I am thinking these would make a nice little treat for the bus drivers this fall. I love tossing little treats at them to enjoy on the morning journey. If you should decide to whip up a batch of these yummy blondie bars and add the nuts, be sure to let me know how they taste.
