Girl Scout Cookie Blondies with Thin Mints and Tagalongs

Yes, this HAD to happen. Quite frankly I've been feeling a bit jealous of all those food bloggers who churn out delectable treat after delectable treat, so when the only solicitors that people actually want coming to their door, the Girl Scouts showed up at mine and a friend sent me an email with 25 different over the top indulgent blondie recipes it seemed only fair to add 26 to the list with some Girl Scout cookie blondies.

I don't know about your home, but in ours Thin Mints and Tagalongs rule the roost so I whipped up a batch of blondies and used both of them.

Super Simple Blondie Recipe

1 cup of light brown sugar
1 cup of all purpose flour
A pinch of salt.  Seriously, just a pinch!
1 large egg
1 stick or 4 oz butter  - yep, I know.  I didn't say they were super healthy!
1/2 tsp of vanilla extract
1/4 cup of chocolate chips (optional) - milk, dark, semisweet it's up to you.

First I mixed up the wet ingredients, added the dry ingredients (including the chocolate chips) and kept stirring until it formed a uniform dough.

When making brownies or blondies I always use wax paper and lightly grease it so when the blondies are done they are easy to remove and slice up.  I used a little less than half of the batter and spread it as evenly as I could in an 8x8 Pyrex baking dish.  If the batter is sticking to your spatula you can wet it with a little bit of water and that will help with spreading it out.

After I got that bottom half of the dough spread I chose my cookies and pressed them into the batter one by one.  I tried to space them evenly so I could slice them in a way that each blondie would have a whole cookie inside.  Pressing the cookies into the dough means you won't have to work as hard to cover them up when you add the remaining batter.

Scoop the rest of the batter on top and spread it out as evenly as you can making sure to cover all of the girl scout cookies.

Pop the pan into a 350 degree oven for just about 30 minutes and you'll have perfectly golden brown blondies with the holy grail of cookies inside.   The wax paper will make them easy to pop right out of the baking dish so they can cool on a wire rack or your counter top.

Take these to a party and you'll almost certainly be asked to bring them next time...sure beats assembling a lasagna!
