Notes

I've always loved the chewy texture of blond brownies. I've created my own version adding pears and a hint of spices and to dress them up a bit some sugared almonds on top.

i had to substitute an tiny drop of anise instead of almond extract, but had everything else...turned out YUM!!! very unique recipe, patcook1, thx for the post!

Going to try these as well. Pears in baking go so well.

Good going, Pat. Your recipe is high on my "to make" list.
