RECIPE: (Light) Butterscotch Blondies

woodie2December 13, 2007

Thought I'd share this recipe that DD tried over the weekend - one of the rare things she makes without chocolate, LOL. I don't have the nutritional info, but supposedly it's a "light" recipe as compared to some others, I wouldn't really argue if anybody questions the amount of sugar and fat, I just know that they tasted great and we considered them downright health food this past weekend!


Recipe from Cooking Light

2 cups all purpose flour

2 1/2 cups firmly packed light brown sugar

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

10 tablespoons unsalted butter

3/4 cup egg substitute

Cooking spray

1. Preheat oven to 350

2. Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups, level with a knife. Combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in a large bowl.

3. Place butter in a small skillet over medium heat. Cook for 6 minutes or until lightly browned, stirring occasionally. Pour into a small bowl and cool for 10 minutes. Combine butter and egg substitute, stirring with a whisk. Pour butter mixture over flour mixture; stir just until moistened. Spoon batter into a 13 x 9 inch baking pan coated with cooking spray; smooth top with spatula. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pan on wire rack. Cut into 48 squares. Yield 24 servings

And a big scoop of ice cream would be great with them (NOT light ice cream.) ;)

Woodie, guess it is the eggbeaters that makes them "Light", huh? Will print this one out and try Ginger's suggestion too! LOL

Ginger, shame on you, trying to turn health food into something way bad, Santa ought to slap you upside the head! I'm surprised you even opened this (light) thread, LOL, guess you were desperately looking for some cream yesterday :)

Just for you, Ginger - don't forget to top the sundae with whipped cream :)

Recipe Courtesy Arthur Schwartz
Makes 1-3/4 cup

To make the classic SchrafftÂs sundae, I have been using Haagen-Dazs coffee ice cream and Blue Diamond brand roasted, salted almonds. TheyÂre terrific. I chop them coarsely and use about a heaping tablespoon on each sundae. Need I say that if you prefer chocolate or vanilla to coffee ice cream, the sauce and nuts are still a sensational sundae topping.

1 cup packed light brown sugar
1/2 cup light corn syrup
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

In a heavy, medium-sized saucepan, over medium heat, combine the brown sugar, corn syrup, butter, and salt. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly.

When the mixture begins boiling at the edge of the pot, stop stirring and boil hard for 1 minute.

Remove from heat. Pour in the cream and stir well. Stir in the vanilla.

The sauce may be served hot, warm or at room temperature. If it gets a little grainy or lumpy, reheat gently and still vigorously with a whisk.

ArthurÂs Two Cents: I made a double batch with no problem, but had much left over. Stored in a tightly closed jar, it kept in my refrigerator perfectly for nearly six weeks  until I finished it.
