I go to lunch monthly with a great group of ladies. We laugh, eat, and laugh some more. We joke that we are eating our way thru Utah County! We don't often get dessert--so I happily bring it. I need to try recipes for my blog and I love to share. It is also difficult having a pan of goodies staring at me all day.
I made these Peanut Butter Cup Blondies because I had a bag of Mini Reese's Peanut Butter Cups in the pantry. I knew if I didn't use them soon I would eat them straight out of the bag. Do you ever do this--please say yes?
The recipe was simple to put together which was a good thing because time was short. I cooked the blondies and then put them outside in 30 degrees to cool. It wasn't long and they were packaged and ready to go. The blondies looked like little presents. Who doesn't want a goodie wrapped and ribboned (I made that word up)!
This recipe comes from Alida's Kitchen.

1 1/4 cup flour
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar (3 1/2 ounces)
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder

2 tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
