Butterscotch Blondies with Sea Salt

This is the "one" recipe. It is all about numero uno. One cup of this, one teaspoon of that, one egg... one one one. Fold it all together and BOOM... blondies!

Blondies & milk.

Blondies are not just cookie dough pressed into a pan. They start as more of a batter, have the texture of a brownie and taste like a cookie.

Blondies are a blank canvas- add whatever you like. I went with butterscotch chips but the options are endless. Coarse sea salt balances all the sweetness.

Bonus- these can be made in one bowl (and a saucepan) and come together with a wooden spoon. Sweet, salty and a little under-baked. Ideal.
