Chef's Notes

You can use chopped pecans instead of walnuts, if desired; You can add chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, peanut butter chips, or white chocolate chips, etc. You can also change the light brown sugar to dark for a more intense flavor.


  1. I love this recipe but it has a LOT of sugar. Cut the sugar in half and it is still plenty sweet.
  2. Amazing!
  3. This was awesome. I did change a couple of things. Mix everything but the flour until smooth, then add the flour. Also, used white chocolate chips.
  4. Delicious! We didn't have chocolate chips so we broke a chocolate bar into pieces and put them on top before cooking
  5. One of the BEST blonde recipes! These melt in your mouth! I added walnuts and chocolate chips. The recipe is super easy and fast. Will definitely be making these again.
  6. this recipe is a great one; not only for taste but they are so easy to whip up at last minute. These are sure to go over at any event or function. I love the versatility of the add-ins also. I used up peanuts butterscotch morsels semi-sweet and a few holiday M&M's I had on - Read more ...
  7. I added butterscotch chips to the batch, and I used chopped almonds instead of walnuts. Really liked the results!
  8. Exceptionally yummy! I added 1t cinnamon, 1/4t allspice, pecans, raisins and chocolate chips. They went over very well with the neighbors.
