Blondies… The original ‘Brownie’ before chocolate muscled in and took over. Here we do a version of a blondies recipe that features brown butter and hazelnuts. Often they are called ‘Blonde Brownies’ or Blondie Brownies’… we just call this recipe delicious! Hazelnut Brown Butter Blondies Recipe
1 cup (250 mL / 140g) hazelnuts
1 cup (250 mL / 230g) unsalted butter
1 3/4 cups (315g) dark brown sugar
4 tsp (20 mL) pure vanilla extract
4 tsp (20 mL) hazelnut liqueur
2 cups (500 mL / 320g) all-purpose flour
1 tsp (5 mL / 7g) coarse salt

Preheat oven to 350°F (180ºC)
Toast the hazelnuts on a sheet tray in the oven for 10-15 minutes.
Roughly chop the hazelnuts in a food processor.
Brown the butter over medium heat.
Stir occasionally, it will foam and spatter as the water content ‘boils’ off.
The butter is ready when the foaming stops and you see brown bits at the bottom of the pan.
Allow to cool.
Grease an 9×9″ baking pan and line with a parchment paper sling.
Whisk together flour and salt.
In a stand mixer, whisk together eggs and brown sugar.
When light and frothy whisk in vanilla, cooled butter, and hazelnut liqueur.
Add flour mixture to the butter/sugar/egg mixture, and mix just until combined.
Add the hazelnuts.
Mix until evenly distributed.
Scrape dough into your prepared baking pan and spread into the corners.
Bake for 25 to 30 minutes.
You’ll know it’s done when you see a crispy top that’s just starting to crack with firm slightly-browned edges.
Remove from the oven.
Cool completely before removing from the pan.
