Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Can I use brown sugar instead of white sugar?
A: While white granulated sugar is recommended for a lighter flavor, light or dark brown sugar can be used for a deeper, caramel-like taste.

Q: What if I don’t have almond extract?
A: Almond extract adds a unique flavor, but it can be omitted or substituted with more vanilla extract.

Tips and Tricks

  • Room Temperature Ingredients: Ensure your eggs and unsalted butter are at room temperature for a smoother batter.
  • Correct Measuring: Use the scoop and level method for the flour to avoid dense blondies.
  • Don’t Overmix: Mix the batter just until the dry ingredients are incorporated to maintain a chewy texture.

Variations

  • Chocolate Mint Chip: Add cocoa powder and mint chips for a chocolate mint twist.
  • Nutella Blondies: Swirl in Nutella before baking for a hazelnut flavor.
