Happy 1 Year Blogger-versary To Me!

Tags: , ,

Good Saturday night everyone. Yowza, how fast does a year go?!! It has been so much fun sharing my recipe creations with all of you who read them! I have learned so much this last year. Thanks for all of you who comment. It really makes my day to read all of your comments!

So, in celebration of my 1 year blogger-versary, I have created the best blondies in town, in my opinion! They were inspired by my visit to Chelsea Market during my recent trip to NY. They had a fab little brownie shop called the Fat Witch where I bought a white chocolate blondie that was heavenly! I quickly got to work in my kitchen and came up with my own version. I was hesitant at first about adding the raspberries, but whoa they are good tucked inside with the white chocolate.

Take a peek and make yourself some blondies!

Since it’s a celebration, seriously add the ice cream!

Raspberry White Chocolate Blondies

¼ Cup butter

¾ Cup white chocolate chips

½ Cup sugar

¼ Cup brown sugar

1 Cup flour

½ teaspoon baking powder

½ teaspoon salt

½ Cup white chocolate chips

2 eggs

2 Tablespoons sour cream

1 Cup fresh raspberries

½ Cup finely chopped pecans

2 Tablespoons sanding sugar

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Melt butter in microwave safe bowl. Stir in ¾ Cup white chips until melted and smooth. In a large bowl add the sugar, brown sugar, flour, baking powder, salt and ½ Cup white chips. In a small bowl whisk the eggs and sour cream. Pour into the dry ingredient bowl along with the melted white chip mixture. Mix until just combined.

2. Pour into an 8×8 inch baking dish lined with foil that’s been sprayed with cooking spray. Top evenly with 1 Cup raspberries. Mix the chopped pecans and sanding sugar in a small bowl until combined then sprinkle over top of blondies. Bake for 30-35 minutes, or until toothpick comes clean from center.

    Wow! Honestly, a year is pretty young, and yet your blog is so well-done and incredibly successful. You are one very impressive woman.

    Picky Palate is literally one of my favorite blogs, and is always one of the first I look for in my Google Reader. Even if I can’t find the time to try out some of your recipes, your photography is total eye candy enough! I think it’s incredibly clever that you post several pictures; that is your signature!

    Congratulations! I wish for you many, many more years of bloggy success!!!
