VANILLA BROWNIES

August 11, 2013

Nope, not blondies. Those are butterscotch flavored. (I had to look it up, to be honest.)

Vanilla brownies. (David rightly cautioned me from calling them “whities.”)

If you associate vanilla with being bland & boring, let me rock your world.

    I’m just wondering what size pan I am supposed to use?
    AND
    in step 5 – it’s not clear – do I beat the eggs, sour cream & vanilla together first and then temper it before adding so the eggs don’t cook instantly?
    THANKS so much in advance for the clarification.
    Love your blog!

    I’m trying this recipe out right now because it looks interesting! It’s in the oven right now. It doesn’t say to, but I’m assuming you have to beat the eggs before you add them. Also, I used a baking sheet (flat cookie sheet) and I hope that’s what you meant!

    These look sooo good! I will definitely be making these tomorrow. Thanks!

  • Not gonna lie. I’m kindof obsessed with your blog (made THREE of your recipes in the last week). And this doesn’t help. :) Thanks for sharing, per usual!
