White Chocolate-Cinnamon Blondies

Make these moist and chewy brownies are made with white chocolate and just the right blend of sugar and spice

My friend Martha challenged me to make a brownie without using chocolate. I started with my Blonde Brownie recipe and mixed in white chocolate chips. I wasn’t cheating: White chocolate isn’t officially chocolate because it’s made without the chocolate liquor that comes from processing the cacao bean. Then, I added my secret ingredient: cinnamon! The result: a moist, chewy brownie with just the right blend of sugar and spice—and one delighted friend.

Ingredients

For the White Chocolate Blondie Batter

  • 12 Tablespoons (1½ sticks) salted butter
  • 1 1/2 Cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 Teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 Cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 Teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 Teaspoon salt
  • 1 Cup (6 ounces) white chocolate chips

For the Cinnamon-Sugar Filling

  • 2 Teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 Cup sugar

Directions

For the White Chocolate Blondie Batter

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease a 9x13-inch pan and set aside.

Using an electric mixer or spatula, mix together the butter and brown sugar until well combined. Add the eggs and vanilla and mix well. Add the flour, baking, powder, and salt and mix thoroughly. Fold in the white chocolate chips with a spatula until evenly distributed. Pour half of the batter into the prepared pan, creating a thin, even layer.

For the Cinnamon-Sugar Filling

Stir together the cinnamon and sugar. Sprinkle half of the cinnamon-sugar over the batter. Top with remaining batter, smoothing it to create a thin, even layer, and then sprinkle with the remaining cinnamon-sugar.

Bake for 25 to 28 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the center of the blondies comes out clean.

Cool completely, and then cut into 24 pieces.
