Cinnamon Blondies

These were easy to make and very delicious.  I was supposed to underbake them, and I sure did, lol- I didn't realize until a few hours later, when I cut into them, that they were still completely raw everywhere except the very edges!!  (I was trying to make two other recipes at the same time....)  So, I hoped for the best and stuck them back into a 350 oven for a while until they seemed baked enough.  I am happy to say they did not suffer at ALL from the re-baking.  They turned out very delicious- chewy, sweet and full of cinnamon flavor.  They did not last long here!  (At all.  I blame the children.  Yeah, the children.  The sweet, innocent children.)

Cinnamon Blondies
from A Little Bit Crunchy...

1 cup plus 2 tablespoons flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 stick unsalted butter (1/2 cup)
1 1/2 cups light brown sugar
1 egg plus 1 egg yolk
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla

1.  Preheat oven to 350F. Line a square 8X8 or 9x9 inch pan with parchment paper and then grease the pan.  (Or you can just be super lazy like me and use only cooking spray).  In a small bowl, whisk the flour, salt, and cinnamon together- set aside.  Melt the butter and brown sugar together. Cook for 1 minute until it just starts to bubble around the edges- but don't let it come to a boil. Pour into a large bowl and let it cool for about 10 minutes.

2.  Add the vanilla to the butter/sugar mixture and then the egg and egg yolk. Whisk together. Add the flour mixture and stir with a wooden spoon- just until combined.  Pour into your prepared pan.

3.  Bake for 20-25 minutes.  They will be set on top but still slightly jiggly in the center.  Remove them from the oven and allow to cool completely in the pan on a cooling rack. When cool- allow to firm up in the refrigerator for a few hours before cutting.
