Just about the only good thing that came out of yesterday was the Peach Blondies!

I really like blondies, but – as with so many things – I forget about them or seldom make them.

I was determined that at least one thing would go right – and I succeeded!  they really did come out good!

The recipe is straight from the Better Homes and Garden New Cook Book, circa 1981.  It’s my quick go-to  book for easy baked things. The recipe calls for 1 cup chopped walnuts.  I used 2 chopped peaches, instead.

Peach Blondies

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 2 cups packed brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 chopped peaches

Grease a 13x9x2 inch baking pan.  Combine flour, baking powder, and 1/4 tsp salt.  Melt butter; remove from heat.  Stir in sugar.  Add eggs and vanilla; stir until combined.  Stir dry ingredients into sugar mixture.  Add peaches and stir to combine.  Bake in a 350° oven about 25 minutes.

Another great way to use up some peaches.

These are great.  They’re rich and butterscotchy with yummy peaches throughout.

I’m off to get more right now…
