I hope you all had a fabulous Thanksgiving weekend! Mine was filled with an large amount of food, fun and family time leaving me totally tuckered out. Maybe it’s the whole 32 weeks pregnant thing, or maybe just that I haven’t had a good night’s sleep in weeks- but I think I may be ready for my long winter’s nap right about now. Wouldn’t it be nice if humans could hibernate too?
Lucky for me- I made these delicious blondies several weeks ago, which is perfect because I’m just not quite ready to jump back into the kitchen. (Making about 10 pies in 3 weeks can do that to a girl.) I am always so bad at holding out on delicious treats that I’ve made, but these are so worth the wait.
To me, December marks the beginning of some of my favorite winter flavors included spicy gingerbread. You should plan to see several ginger-y recipes in the coming weeks, starting with this gem. These blondies (which look more like brownies,) have everything you’d want in a bar, crisp edges, chewy centers, and tons of delicious flavor. The recipe makes a huge batch which means this is the perfect recipe to make for your next holiday get together or gift-giving baking session. I chopped up the white chocolate pretty fine, but bigger chunks or even chips would work well too.
Hooray for the Holiday season folks! I’m gonna get super excited about it any day now, but first I’m going back to bed. ;)
