blondie [blon dee] noun
Also called blonde brownies or butterscotch bars. A popular bar cookie featuring a brown sugar and butter base. So called because they are lighter in color than a brownie and indeed are sort of “blonde.” They may contain nuts, chocolate chips or other add-ins, or none at all. They are prized for a butterscotch-like flavor. Some blondie recipes contain leavener and, like brownies, they can vary from chewy and moist to more cake-like.
