Summer is full of so many fun and exciting holidays! I just figured it out that most of them revolve around the Red, White and Blue color scheme! These Patriotic Cookies and Cream Blondies are perfect for those holiday celebrations and BBQ’s!
Now I love a good chewy cookie or bar and these Patriotic Cookies and Cream Blondies are just that! Chewy! I use more brown sugar in this recipe than most blondie recipes but let me tell you they keep these blondies moist and chewy. Just the way I like them.
I have always struggled to keep my cookies and blondies soft and chewy until I did a little research. I started playing with using a combination of vegetable shortening and butter in my cookies. I remembered when I was in college we couldn’t afford to buy butter so all my cookies were made with margarine which is flavoring and a form of shortening so combining the two seemed the likely choice! After a little trial and error I came to using equal portions of butter and shortening in my blondies and cookies was the perfect combination. Now I always use this combination in my cookies! If your a purist you can use all butter! Its your choice! Both ways are great!
Another great tip is you can change the colors of the sprinkles and cookies to match any holiday. These are one of my go to recipes and I make them all the time! I like that I only have one bake. No keeping the oven on and heating my house up during the summer!Print
