Today is "National Blonde Brownie Day"

BLONDE BROWNIES

1/4 c. butter
1 c. packed golden brown sugar
3/4 c. all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 lg. egg
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1 1/3 c. walnut or pecan pieces

Preheat oven to 350 (340 for glass) 8x8 pan, greased. Melt butter over low heat in a medium saucepan. Stir in sugar and mix well. Cool slightly. Combine flour, baking powder and salt - set aside.

In a medium bowl beat egg and vanilla together. Add brown sugar mixture, blend thoroughly. Stir in flour mixture. Stir in nuts. Spread batter in greased pan. Bake 25 minutes. Top will be slightly puffed and a toothpick inserted 1 inch from center will come out barely moist. Cool in pan on rack completely before cutting.

My hubby LOVES these. Simple and easy to make.
