I made these Awesome Blondie Bars based off an idea from a dessert I ordered during a recent Branson trip from the Paula Dean-s Family Kitchen. These bars are based of the Ooey Gooey Butter Cake. When I ate this cake, I thought the bottom was a graham butter crust with a sugar cookie on top. So, I created a dessert that has a graham cracker crust and a blondie on top.
After actually finding the actual recipe, it turned out that is not the case. However, I am now going to share how I made this Awesome Bar recipe.For the crust you will need:
Sleeve Graham crackers- about 18 crackers1/4 cup sugarStick melted butter about 6-8 tablespoons. I thought a stick was a little too much (if that is a thing). when I make this again, I will cut it back to 6 tablespoons.For the filling you will need:1/4 cup butter1 cup brown sugar1 egg3/4 cup flour1 teaspoon baking powder1/2 teaspoon salt1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Optional mix ins - I used a 1/2 cup of chocolate chips and coconut flakes I had left over.
Preheat oven to 350 F
Grind up the graham crackers into crumbs. Add the sugar and melted butter. press into greased 8- or 9-inch pan, I used a 9-inch pan. I did not prebake the crust. (I might try prebaking it next time)
For the filling, cream the butter, brown sugar and egg. Add the remaining ingredients. I should note that I thought the filling was way too stiff, so I did add a few tablespoons of mild. Add the filling on top of the graham cracker crust. Bake 20-25 minutes until done.
This dessert turned out to be a huge hit. I hope it will be a hit for you too.
