It’s time for another recipe! First, the recipe. Then, me blathering onward about my occasionally questionable culinary capabilities and the memories this particular feast holds for me.
- The Ingredients
- 3/4 cup unsalted butter, melted and cooled slightly
- 3/4 cup white sugar
- 1 cup light brown sugar, packed
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 2 large eggs
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup white chocolate chips (optional)
- 1/2 cup chopped macadamia nuts (optional)
- The Way of Preparing
- Oven to 350°F, 177°C, gas mark 5
- In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the sugars, then add the melted butter and mix until well combined.
- Whisk in the vanilla extract and eggs until one smooth mixture.
- Add the flour, baking powder, and salt; mix until just combined.
- Add whatever mix-ins you are adding before panning.
- Line a 9 x 13 inch baking pan with parchment paper, leaving some for ease of removal. Scoop and spread the batter into the pan.
- Bake for 25-30 minutes or until lightly browned and the top is set.
- Add whatever mix-ins strike your fancy or whatever you have on hand.
All right, so I only make these with a certain caveat: I don’t have to eat them. Heh. I will make them for others, but unless they have butterscotch chips or white chocolate and macadamia nuts in them, I won’t partake. But that’s me.
