Chef Kate’s Goop Blondies

by on July 26, 2009 · 15 comments


his morning I finally tried Chef Kate’s Blondies – a popular recipe from Goop. They were terrific, but I did scale the recipe down a bit because the original is baked in a 12×18 pan. That’s perfect for bake sales or large groups, but we weren’t sharing today.

I didn’t understand the “essence of Emeril” until I ate at one of his restaurants. The man is a genius in the kitchen and the fact that these blondies are stellar is no surprise. Still, you have to be careful because there are a few things in the original recipe that are questionable and I […]

This is a more traditional blondie than the dense and rich ones previously posted. The base is lighter and is a good contrast to the big chunks of pecans which in my opinion, are absolutely necessary. In fact, I wish I’d added butterscotch chips as well because the sweet chips would have been good with the slightly salty (recipe uses salted butter) dough.

Katy's Blondies

This recipe is from Katy who has its source marked as an old Cooks Illustrated recipe. It looks a lot like their more recent one but scaled down a bit and with more egg. Like the newer one, it uses melted butter. Based on all my recent trials, blondies made with melted butter are the best. The ones with creamed ingredients taste good, but are more like Toll House chocolate chip bars than dense, smooth, packed-with-chunks blondies. These are the latter. Also, they’re very sturdy (not gooey) and tasted even better on Day 2.

I’m going to a food blogger potluck this weekend and have decided to take blondies; the ulterior motive being that I can get multiple opinions which should help me choose the Top 5. “Blondies” is a tough category. First, there’s the question of what’s in them. Should we really compare a butterscotch blondie with one […]

After missing an important holiday, National Butterscotch Brownie day, I looked through Cookie Madness and found very few recipes for butterscotch brownies. There were plenty of blondies, but only two really emphasized the butterscotch – the Whole Foods recipe and the one from Cooking Light. So I decided to round up a few new butterscotch brownie recipes and test them side by side.

I decided to commence testing with Jenn’s butterscotch blondie which she posted in […]

Happy Belated Butterscotch Brownie Day! And Happy Mother’s Day as well, but I missed National Butterscotch Day and need to touch on that first because one thing yesterday’s holiday brought to my attention was that of the nine recipes I have categorized under “Blondies”, only a couple have a particular emphasis on butterscotch. I need to make more […]
