I tried the recipe - hubby was particularly impressed although I think I could have cooked it a tad longer as it was a little underdone. That being said though, it was still completely delicious and as promised on the Maddabling Facebook page, I will share it here for you now.
Cookies and Cream Blondie by Donna Hay
200g Butter, softened
1 Cup (175g) Brown Sugar
1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
1 2/3 Cups (250g)Plain Flour Sifted
1 teaspoon baking powder, Sifted
200g white chocolate, melted
125g cream cheese
150g cream-filled chocolate biscuits chopped
1. Preheat the oven to 180C
2. Place the butter and the sugar in the bowl of an electric mixer and beat until pale and creamy. Gradually add the eggs, beating well after each addition, and the vanilla and beat until combined. Add the flour, baking powder and chocolate and beat until combined.
3. Spoon half the mixture into a lightly greased 20cm x 30cm tin lined with non-stick baking paper and top with spoonfuls of cream cheese.
4. Sprinkle with the biscuits and spoon over the remaining blondie mixture and spread to cover biscuits completely.
5. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until cooked when tested with a skewer. Allow to cool in the tin and slice to serve.
Maddabling footnotes : I used a light cream cheese and it still had the desired effect. Next time I make this recipe, I will cook until the whole top is lightly golden as I feel I undercooked the first batch I made.
And now a little flashback to the 1970'S with a song from Blondie called Eat to the Beat ! It seemed appropriate for this blogpost somehow............ see you all tomorrow for Blogtoberfest Day 23 xo
