Tuesdays with Dorie: Peanuttiest Blondies

peanuttiest blondies

As evidenced by the little bit of blur along the plate rim on the bottom left, I am apparently not quite grown up enough to have a set of unchipped plates.  If I did act my age, though, I may not have appreciated these Peanuttiest Blondies as much as I did.  With hunks of chocolate and peanuts, and lots of peanut butter, they tasted remarkably like a favorite candy bar of mine (which I ate way too many of on Sunday night, by the way).  A nice crackly top and chewy on the inside gives them a homebaked feel.  I think I’ll wrap one up and take it to the polls with me today.

For the recipe, see Baking: From My Home to Yours by Dorie Greenspan, or read Bakeologie, as it was Nicole’s choice for TWD this week.  Don’t forget to check out the TWD Blogroll!  I’m interested to see if anyone else had this sinking middle (why? they were not underbaked–wacky, right?).

  1. This sounds delightful. Chocolate and peanut butter. A classic combination, and always a favourite!

  2. You are not alone in the chipped plate department. Seems like whenever I get ready to take a picture of a recipe, I realize I have used that one bowl/plate that’s chipped. Oh well…you’re blondie looks fabulous.

  3. I wish I had had some peanuts to put in this.

    Yours looks great.

  4. Yum they look good! Don’t get any chocolate on your voting ballot!!

  5. I think my chipped plates outnumber good ones right now! I’ve never did grow out my clumsy phase, or my love of peanut butter. Your blondies look great!

  6. Chipped plate or not, these blondies look super delish.

  7. Chipped plates just show lots of love! I think blondies are supposed to sink. That’s what I tell myself!
    Have a great day.

  8. Mine went a little dipped in the middle, too… weird. Looks yummy, though! 🙂

  9. I had a sinking middle too! But I didn’t much care… they were deeelish. I’m thinking it’s because of the moisture factor? But it makes for a nice crunchier edge and softer center. YUM!

    They look SO good! And don’t worry about your plate, I have a crack in my glass cake plate and I still use it 😉

  10. I had the same sinkhole in the middle of mine! I thought it was due to using a smaller pan. I agree – it was a Reece’s in cookie form!

  11. I did too..though I just cut off the edges to make it even…and ate those myself.

  12. the brownie was so captivating I didn’t even notice the chip 🙂

  13. I have chipped plates too and I try and put them at the bottom of the stack but they NEVER stay there!

    Your blondies look awesome! Thanks for baking along!

  14. At least your chipped plates are white- ours are ceramic and dark red so all the chips stand out. 🙂 The blondies look fabulous!

  15. These look amazing, and I am getting more and more annoyed at myself for not baking along this week. I may go the ‘Thursdays with Dorie’ route this week.

  16. Mine had the sinking middle too! I love the chocolate and peanut butter combo but these just didn’t excite me for some reason. My husband loved them though, so I was happy to let him eat most of them 🙂

  17. LOL on the chipped plate. Plenty of those around here as well, when the boys leave next year my plan is to toss them all out and get new ones. Teen boys are very clumsy as it turns out. Your bars look great…love the shape of them, like one of those Roman beds you see in museums…you know me, I appreciate things like that.

  18. These look delish! I also chip my plates (and keep them). Sometimes I’ll even buy chipped plates on clearance if I know I can hide it for a good shot! 🙂

  19. Wow. This little cutie looks yummy. Really. Think I’ll make them on saturday.

  20. Sinking middle here too. I just cut it off and chunked it because it was a little too chewy.

    Been wondering about your house. Sure hope you are taking pictures as you go.

  21. Mine sank too – but I was too busy devouring them to notice. Your blondies look delicious.
