Bourbon Blondies

This past weekend I realized that I had not baked since Christmas.  Christmas I tell you!  That’s unheard of.  Well, I put on my apron and ended my non-baking streak on Sunday.  I baked cookies for me and bourbon blondies for him.  To say that these were successful is an understatement – Big Guy returned the container (empty) promptly on Monday evening after taking all the leftovers to work.

As for the cookies I baked myself…peanut butter and chocolate chunks.  Enough said.  But it gets better – they’re gluten-free.  So I got to actually enjoy my baking.  They didn’t photograph well but they sure did taste delicious and that’s all that matters.  I have a few more gluten-free cookies I have up my sleeve “pinned” on Pinterest that I can’t wait to try.  Even non-gluten-free folks loved these rich, decadent cookies.

And onto the bourbon blondies!  It’s pretty obvious that Big Guy is a fan of blondies (aka ME – har-har-har) and you can believe he loves a blondie even more when you throw some bourbon (Maker’s Mark, please) in (another har-har-har).  Since I don’t drink bourbon, this is as close to a bourbon blonde that he’s going to get.

The ingredients aren’t too complicated – unless you don’t keep bourbon on hand – but don’t leave it out.  And don’t leave out the walnuts.  That was actually the first thing he noted that he loved the most about these bars.

Are you a bourbon lover?  (I actually really like bourbon in a lot of recipes…just not in my drink!)
