A perfect blondie bar is a thing of beauty. By the same token, one the greatest tragedies I have ever witnessed is a lackluster one. I am not one to treat desserts without the proper amount of respect all sweet treats deserve. That said, a cakey, dry, and not-so-sweet blondie should be set on fire and then maybe peed upon.
I don't play when it comes to baked goods. I think there are those who shrug off blondies altogether because they'd rather eat a brownie. It's an impulse I can understand. Still, a perfect blondie, with hints of cinnamon sugar, a crunchy top, and chewy edges, is a thing that oughta be lauded, even by the most staunch chocolate-lover. This here snickerdoodle blondie recipe is the best blondie there is -- probably because it fuses everything wonderful about a good snickdoodle with everything good an excellent blondie has to offer.
