Pecan Pie Blondies
Pecan recipes are always a must eat around this time of the year. Just like pumpkin, pecan also screams fun times with family during the holidays. What is a better way to enjoy with family other than making this delicious Pecan Pie Blondies recipe? It’s one of the fancy but easy desserts to make that is full of chewy and nutty goodness of roasted pecans. The blondies are baked from scratch using a simple recipe, but it’s the topping of rich pecan pie filling that makes this recipe so special. The sprinkling of ever so slight sea salt on top and the drizzle of melted chocolate just adds to the richness even more. You can, of course, make them all year round or just around the holidays. The choice is yours.
Keep in mind a few things before you can start this recipe. Always line your baking pan with a good-quality parchment paper. There is nothing unpleasant when you have to scrape the blondies as a result of not having to line the pan. You should be able to easily lift the blondies off the pan when they’re baked. If you can, try to use good quality pecans because you’ll notice the aroma come right through when you’re making the filling in this recipe. Since this dessert is quite gooey when it’s just out of the oven, you might have to let it set to room temperature before you can cut them into squares. Resist the temptation to cut them right away because there is a good chance these squares will fall apart if they’re still gooey. Although it’s not mandatory that you refrigerate them, they taste best when thoroughly chilled. Pecan nutrition comprises of healthy unsaturated fat that is necessary for our bodies. It is has been proven that eating just a handful of pecans every day can lower “bad” cholesterol. Pecans are also loaded with more than 19 vitamins and minerals that include vitamins A, B, and E, folic acid, calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, and zinc.
To make that perfect batch of blondies, it’s important to re-adjust the oven temperature. Sometimes oven temperatures can vary, for instance, it can be 10 to 15 degrees hotter than it shows. To get a moist and chewy texture in your recipe for blondies, always add an extra egg. You can tell if the blondies are baked when you notice the sides of the brownie batter shrinking and moving away from the pan. Since blondies tend to harden up way too quick, it is important to set the accurate baking time. A typical blondie when still hot usually tends to have a gooey center, but it will firm up once cooled. Remember that the blondie batter will continue to cook even after you take them out of the oven. Another way of finding out if your brownies are done is when you insert a toothpick it comes out with a few moist crumbs sticking to it. If the toothpick comes out clean, then that means the blondies have been over baked and may eventually firm up way more than needed. You need to look for a slightly sticky texture unlike when baking a cake. You could even use white chocolate or cream cheese drizzle as a garnish to give it an edgy look and taste.
