Cookies and Cream Blondies

Hello friends!
Remember me? That girl that used to bake and blog about it?
*sigh*
So I had this baby. (Who I’m so completely in love with by the way.)
I’m also back to work full-time, which means basically no time for sugar, butter, and flour.
BUT. My brother was home for Christmas, and I promised him I’d bake him something.

Cookies and Cream Blondies - adapted from my favorite blondie recipe

Ingredients:
2 sticks butter (I use salted)
2 cups packed brown sugar (I used light)
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla
Dash of salt
2 cups flour
Entire pack of Double Stuf Oreos, crushed

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 350.
2. Melt butter. Beat with brown sugar until smooth.
3. Beat in vanilla and egg.
4. Add salt, then stir in flour until fully incorporated.
5. Mix in Oreo crumbles by hand.
6. Spray a 13×9 pan with non-stick spray, then pour batter into pan. Spread the top as even as possible.

7. Bake for 20 minutes. Let cool completely before cutting so that the ooey gooey inside can set.

At first I thought I out too much Oreos in it because the batter was SO thick. I was worried it wouldn’t bake up well.
WOW I was wrong. These were amazing!
My brother claims that they are his favorite thing I’ve ever made. :)

    These were so awesome!

  2. They look delicious! Don’t stress too much about posting – go snuggle that sweet baby :)

  3. Babies are the black hole of love and time. They devour both….and we give it willingly because we are hopelessly smitten, deeply, forever in love! Enjoy the baby moments! Baking will still be there when you have time. :)

    • Thank you that totally made me smile! It makes me sad not to be able to bake as much but you’re right – it’s for the BEST reason!

      • Carrie, my “baby” is turning 21 next week, so I speak from mom experience when I warn you that though right now time may seem to be creeping along, before you know it, you and your daughter will be baking together and then you will blink and she will be grown. New normals always take adjusting….but with babies/children the new normals seem to change every day. :) Enjoy!
