Brown Butter Pecan Blondies


  • Brown Butter Mixture: 1/2 cup butter (1 stick ) unsalted butter
  • 1 large egg
  • 3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • Blondie: 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups pecans, coarsely chopped
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 3/4 cups packed light brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • Ice cream, caramel, and sea salt for serving


Brown Butter Mixture: Cook butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat, stirring often, until butter foams, then browns, 5-8 minutes. Transfer brown butter to a medium bowl; let cool slightly. Add egg, brown sugar, vanilla, and salt and beat until mixture is light and falls back onto itself in a slowly dissolving ribbon, about 3 minutes. Fold in flour.

Blondie: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Toast pecans on a Silpat tossing once, until slightly darkened and fragrant, 8-10 minutes. Let cool.

Whisk baking powder, salt, and flour in a medium bowl. Using an electric mixer on medium-high speed, beat brown sugar and 1 cup butter in a large bowl until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes. Add eggs one at a time, beating between additions; mix until pale and fluff;y, about 2 minutes. Mix in vanilla.

Reduce speed to low and mix in dry ingredients. Fold in half of the pecans. Scrape two thirds of batter into Flexiflat with stainless steel frame or a 13x9 prepared pan; smooth top, pushing batter to edges. Alternating, dollop brown butter mixture and remaining batter on top. Smooth and sprinkle remaining pecans over.

Bake until blondie is golden brown and firm. (tester will not come out clean) 30-35 minutes. Let cool before slicing. Serve with ice cream, caramel and sea salt.
