Maple Butterscotch Macadamia Blondies

These macadamia blondies from the Whole Foods recipe collection have a rich butterscotch flavor and just enough maple flavor to let you know it’s there. On a scale of 1-10, they’re a 10. One thing to note is that the bake-time on the original recipe is approximate. The directions say 40-50 minutes but mine are always done in less than 40, so check at 35.

    This blondie recipe was the first recipe I have used from your site and from the results, it won’t be the last! They were the BEST blondies I have ever had. I couldn’t stop eating them and that was the bad part! I baked them to send to a soldier in Iraq! I’m pretty sure that he loved them just as much as I did.
