Why I Love This Recipe

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.

Ingredients You'll Need

1/2 C. Butter or Margarine (not spread)
1/2 C. Light Brown Sugar, packed
2 eggs
1 t. Vanilla Extract
1/2 t. Almond Extract
3/4 C. All-purpose Flour
1/4 t. Ground Cinnamon
1/4 t. Ground Nutmeg
1 Bartlett Pear, peeled, cored and finely chopped
1 C. Butterscotch Morsels
1/2 C. Blanched Almonds, sliced
1 T. Granulated Sugar


Preheat oven to 350º F. Spray a 9-inch square baking pan with non-stick cooking spray.

Cream together butter or margarine and brown sugar.

Beat in eggs, vanilla and almond extracts.

Add flour and spices. Fold in chopped pear and butterscotch morsels.

Pour into prepared pan.

In a small bowl, mix together sliced almonds and sugar and sprinkle over top of batter.

Bake for 30 minutes until done.

Questions, Comments & Reviews

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.
