Using Brown Butter in Blondies

First things first: you have to know how to make the best brown butter blondies! I may be biased, but brown butter makes just about everything better. If you’re unfamiliar with the process, be sure to learn how to brown butter in my previous post. Once browned, the butter adds a unique warm taste to the blondies that regular butter cannot offer. It pairs perfectly with the cozy cinnamon sugar snickerdoodle flavor, making these brown butter blondies the easiest comfort food dessert maybe ever.

How to Make Brown Butter Snickerdoodle Blondies

To make these treats, we start by browning the butter. Once golden and fragrant, we stir in the brown sugar, an egg, and vanilla extract. Next comes the dry ingredients which includes a pinch of salt and a bit of cinnamon. Finally, the dough presses into the pan before a sprinkle of cinnamon sugar tops the whole thing. The blondies bake in the oven for about 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted just barely comes out clean. Voila!

What to Serve with Blondies

Truth be told, I love to serve these blondies solo. They need no backup singer. But if you’re dying to make these a showstopper, here’s what you need: first, ice cream. Vanilla, to be precise. Serve it alongside a warm square of blondie. A drizzle of homemade caramel? Perhaps a sprinkling of candied nuts? Even more cinnamon sugar? Absolutely. Make it a modified sundae, and you’re good to go.

  • Author: Kate Wood
  • Prep Time: 15
  • Cook Time: 30
  • Total Time: 45 minutes
  • Yield: 12
  • Category: Dessert

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, cubed into equals sized pieces
  • 3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 ¼ teaspoons cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons sugar

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line an 8″ square pan with foil and spray with cooking spray. Set aside.
  2. Add the butter to a light-bottomed pan over medium heat. Melt the butter, stirring regularly. Once the butter is melted and has stopped sizzling as frequently, begin to whisk constantly until the butter has browned to a medium-dark hue. (See notes for help.) Remove the butter to a separate large bowl. Allow to cool briefly, about 5 minutes.
  3. Once slightly cooled, whisk the brown sugar into the brown butter. Add the eggs and the vanilla and whisk well to combine. In a separate small bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder, salt, and ¾ teaspoons of the cinnamon. Add the dry ingredients to the brown butter mixture and fold to combine.
  4. Spread the batter into the prepared pan. Stir the remaining cinnamon and the 2 teaspoons of sugar together. Sprinkle the mixture on top of the blondie batter.  Bake in the preheated oven, about 25-30 minutes or until the edges are set and a toothpick inserted to the center just barely comes out clean.

Gooey Funfetti Bars

So why did we need another sprinkle dessert? In truth, we didn’t but now that we have them, aren’t you kinda glad? These gooey funfetti bars likely fall in the blondie category. They’re gooey like an underbaked brownie, and feature a flaky delicate top and buttery insides. The bars are loaded with sprinkles and flavored with clear vanilla extract which offers cake mix flavor. I prefer these bars how I prefer my brownies: slightly underdone. But if you’d prefer, you can bake them a few minutes longer for a more cakey treat.
