Thanks to The Cookie Scoop for this recipe. She cooks by weight, so I have converted everything to volume.
If you are hungry for peanut butter, this is a recipe for you! I would actually argue that this has too much peanut butter for my tastes. The white chocolate was an excellent compliment to the peanut butter, and I did not realize the greatness of the combination until this recipe. These definitely taste much better when they have had a chance to cool completely, so don't leave out that step!
Do you have a favorite treat that combines white chocolate and peanut butter?
1/2 cup butter
1 cup all purpose flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 cup peanut butter
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 egg, beaten
1 tsp. vanilla
1/3 cup white chocolate; chopped (I used white chocolate chips)
Preheat oven to 325. Line an 8" x 8" pan with parchment paper.
Beat butter and peanut butter until light and creamy. Add vanilla. Mix in sugar and egg. Stir in white chocolate. Sift in flour and baking powder.
Pour into prepared pan and spread evenly.
Bake 25 - 30 minutes. Allow blondies to cool in the pan at least an hour, then lift out and cut into squares or rectangles.
Yields 9 big squares.
