This would, I guess, be Wednesday with Dorie, but let’s keep that among ourselves. We (Husband, #1 Son, #2 Son, #1 Son’s Girlfriend, and I) were going to an outdoor concert the other evening for which I was making a picnic dinner, and I thought “Where better to look for a dessert recipe than my new Dorie book?”
And so â€” after much deliberation and agonizing â€” I decided on Chewy, Chunky Blondies. They’re standard (although buttery rich) blondies chock full of chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, toasted walnuts, and coconut. And they are yummy, although very sweet. I used unsweetened coconut rather than the sweetened called for in the recipe (because that’s all I have, thanks to an unnamed son who used the sweetened and didn’t write it on the shopping list), and that helped cut the sweetness a bit.
I would make these again, but they’re best for a party, where there are lots of people to share them. They’re just too rich and sweet to eat more than one or two at a time.
