I got this recipe from Good Things Catered–one of my go-to food blogs. Her food is yummy, so you should check it out. Her link is over there, to the right.
These are yummy, peanut buttery blondies. Great flavor. I cut them pretty small, partially because they’re a little rich, but mainly because my office is filled with greedy little pigs, and I knew some people would take three or four, so if I cut them small, everyone should get at least one.
Oh, and the picture at the bottom is not mine. I thieved it. Remember the mean elf messed up my photo card. Starting on day three though, the pictures will be mine, all mine. Be patient 🙂
