2 tsp. double-acting baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 c. white chocolate chips
1 c. walnut pieces (optional)

1. In a large mixing bowl, combine butter and brown sugar. Stir until fully blended and cool.
2. Add eggs separately, beating well after each addition.
3. In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and salt.
4. Add to butter mixture and stir until fully combined.
5. Fold in chocolate chips and walnuts until evenly blended.
6. Pour into greased 9 x 13 baking pan.
7. Bake 35 minutes at 350 or until golden brown and slightly puffed up in center.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
These are probably my most favorite item on the menu at The Grit (a restaurant in Athens, GA). I have this recipe memorized. I wish I could eat them every day but I would be as big as my house.

For once, I will say do not go low fat. Use real butter (Land o' Lakes and not the generic either) because it really makes a difference. Also, be sure the eggs are at room temp before adding them.

If you want thicker, softer blondies put the mix in a 9 x 9 pan and bake for ~35-40 min. In the 9 x 13 pan I generally bake for ~25-30 min because I like mine very soft and moist.
