2 sticks (1 cup) unsalted butter, cut into small piece, plus more for greasing

2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting 

1 1/2 cups firmly-packed light brown sugar 

3/4 teaspoon baking soda 

1/2 teaspoon fine salt 

2 large eggs 

1 teaspoon vanilla extract 

About 1 1/2 cups butterscotch, semisweet chocolate, peanut butter, or white chocolate chips, optional


  1. 1.Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Butter and flour a 9-by-13-inch glass baking dish and set aside.
  2. 2. Melt butter in a medium skillet over medium heat until the water evaporates and the milk solids turn golden brown, 7 to 10 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool slightly.
  3. 3. Stir butter into brown sugar in a large bowl until smooth; cool to room temperature. 
  4. Meanwhile, in another medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, and salt; set aside. Whisk eggs and vanilla into sugar mixture. Add flour mixture a bit at a time and mix until a smooth thick batter forms. Fold in chips, as desired. 
  5. 4. Evenly spread batter into prepared dish. Bake until blondies are light brown around edges and a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, about 20 to 25 minutes. 
  6. Remove from oven; cool slightly. Invert onto a rack to release; cool completely. Cut into squares and serve.
