Pistachio & Raspberry Jam Blondies
This recipe is quick and easy but packed with flavor and texture. Brown sugar combined with butter and vanilla give a sweet and rich taste to this desert. The pistachios add a nice crunch as well as a salty contrast. However, the red raspberry jam is the secret to these blondies. It brings the perfect amount of fruity sweetness to this updated recipe.
1 cup flour
½ teaspoon baking powder
¼ teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon table salt
¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
½ cup unsalted butter
1 cup packed light brown sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
½ cup chopped pistachios
1/3 cup Oregon Growers Red Raspberry Jam
Place parchment paper along the inside of a 8×8 metal pan. Lightly grease with butter and sprinkle with flour.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and place rack in the upper third of the oven.
In a medium size bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon.
In a medium saucepan, melt butter. Remove pan from heat and stir in brown sugar with a wooden spoon. Add eggs and vanilla. Stir in the flour mixture. Add ½ of the pistachios, and combine. Spread the batter into the pan and top with the remaining pistachios.
Using a butter knife, swirl the raspberry jam into the batter. Bake for 20-25 minutes. After 10 minutes, rotate the pan. When the top is golden, remove and let cool completely on a rack. Using the parchment paper, lift the blondies out of the pan.
Cut into squares and eat!
