Anything Goes Blondies


  • Ready Time : 0 min



  • 6 tablespoons unsalted margarine
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • ½ cup dark brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 ½ teaspoons vanilla extract
  • ¾ cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt


  • ½ cup semisweet or bittersweet chocolate chips or chunks
  • ½ cup white chocolate chips
  • ½ cup dried fruit – chopped apricots, cherries, cranberries, raisins
  • 3 tablespoons whiskey + 1 additional tablespoon flour (add whiskey with vanilla)
  • ½ cup toasted nuts, roughly chopped
  • 1 ½ tablespoons instant coffee powder, dissolved in vanilla
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease an 8 inch square pan, then line with a piece of parchment paper cut to fit the bottom and extend over two sides.  In a micro-safe bowl, melt margarine with sugars in the microwave.  Cool slightly, then beat in egg and vanilla extract (and whiskey, if using).  Stir together flour, baking powder, and salt, then mix into sugar mixture until just combined.

Fold in add-ins of your choice, one or a combination of several, and spread mixture into the prepared pan (added in bittersweet chips, dried cherries, and whiskey).  Bake for 17-20 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the centered tests nearly clean.  Cool in pan, then use the parchment to remove from pan and slice into bars.


This recipe doubles beautifully into a 9×13 inch pan.

    I’m planning to make some for shabbos. If I put them in the fridge would they still have their chewiness?

    • Refrigeration can tend to dry out baked goods. Your best bet is a sealed container at room temperature, which will stay good for several days, or in the freezer.
