Blondies Day!

Today is Blondies day!  I'm not talking about that comic... but blonde brownies!  They're like brownies, but made with flour, brown sugar, butter, eggs, baking powder, vanilla and whatever else you want to add!  I have found a few recipes I wanna share with you guys:
Cinnamon Blondies
by Sugarlaws
INGREDIENTS
2 2/3 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp cream of tartar
1 tsp salt
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup white sugar
1 cup butter, softened
2 large eggs
1 tbsp vanilla extract
DIRECTIONS
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a 9 by 13-inch pan with parchment paper and cooking spray.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, cream of tartar and salt, and set the mixture aside. In a second bowl, cream together butter, brown sugar and white sugar, and then add the eggs and the vanilla.
Stir in the flour mixture and blend well. Spread the batter into the prepared pan, evening it with a spatula if necessary. Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean or with a few crumbs attached. Let the pan cool completely.
Makes about 30 small bars.
 Cinnamon Blondies
by Two Peas and Their Pod
1 1/2 cups cake flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups packed light brown sugar
1 1/2 sticks (12 tablespoons) unsalted butter, melted
2 large eggs
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 1/2 cup cinnamon chips (or stir-in of your choice-nuts, dried fruit, chocolate chips)
Adjust oven rack to lowest position and heat oven to 325 degrees. Spray an 8-inch square metal baking pan with vegetable-oil cooking spray. Fold a 16-inch length of heavy-duty foil to 7 1/2 inches wide and lay it across pan bottom and up two sides so you have foil overhangs to pull blondies from pan. Spray foil with vegetable-oil spray.
Whisk flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt in a medium bowl. Whisk brown sugar into butter in a medium bowl. Whisk eggs and vanilla together in a small bowl, then whisk into butter mixture. Whisk in dry ingredients until just combined. Fold in cinnamon chips or stir-in of your choice. Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake until blondies are just set, about 40 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool for 5 minutes. Using foil handles, pull blondies from pan, set on wire rack, and cool to room temperature. Cut into squares and serve.
Snickerdoodle Blondies
by Baking Junkie
1 cup (2 sticks) salted butter, room temperature
2 cups brown sugar
2 eggs
1 Tbsp vanilla
2 ⅔ cup all purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
¼ tsp ground nutmeg
2 Tbsp sugar
2 Tbsp cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9×9 inch baking pan and set aside. Beat together the butter and brown sugar, then add eggs one at a time. Add vanilla. In a separate bowl combine flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg. Slowly add to liquid ingredients and mix until combined. Dough will be thick. Spread into greased pan and smooth top as much as possible (either with back of spoon or spatula). Combine cinnamon and sugar, then sprinkle on top of dough. Bake for approximately 30 minutes.
 Mmm!  I love blondies.  I'm not a HUUUGE fan of chocolate... (although sometimes I get chocolate cravings) but I loooove blondies!  I've had a pretty good weekend so far, last night I went over to my friend Sam's house for girls night, and we decided to get together every Tuesday night at her place for girls/craft night!  She has an AWESOME upstairs loft with slanted ceilings and exposed brick... my favourite!  I'll have to take photos on Tuesday.  It's kind of my dream room, haha!  So I'm excited about that!  That's going to be a ton of fun.  And we can make things for De's wedding!  I'm so excited.  Today Keith & I went out with my friend Erin for coffee and we met her boyfriend Will.  We had a really good time with them & hopefully will see them again soon!  Will is working in the States right now but he comes up to Canada as often as he can.   Then after that I went to my Baba's house for her birthday (for cupcakes) & then I came home and have been looking at things to do in France!  Oh yeah, did I mention I'm going to EUROPE?!  I'm so excited!  I'm going at the end of May & beginning of June.  We're going to France, Italy, Germany & Switzerland.  Ahhhhhhhhhhh.  I've never been, but I'm SO so soooo pumped!  Have any of you guys been before?  Let me know what some must do things are!  I can't wait!!
