// Baking // on a cold afternoon

It's a cold afternoon here. The house has a chill to it no matter how much heat pumps through the vents; classical music is strolling through the front rooms and my cat is sprawled out in sunshine basking in winter's solar warmth. I've been a good workout girl and been back to the gym regularly this month and haven't baked anything lately so .... it was time. I checked the cabinets and noticed some ingredients that would fulfill a favorite recipe of mine plus there were some Christmas M&Ms left over that wanted to be thrown in to the mix.

These blondies just came out of the oven and needless to say, the house now smells like butterscotch bliss. Perhaps you would like to make a batch too? Here's the recipe - enjoy!

Butterscotch and M&M Blondies
1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/8 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup butter
1 cup packed brown sugar, I used light brown sugar
1 egg
1 Tablespoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup M & Ms
1/2 cup butterscotch morsels

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Mix together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
Melt butter in microwave bowl. Let cool slightly. Pour melted butter in another bowl and add egg (beaten) and vanilla extract; blend well. Add flour mixture, little by little, to this mixture, mixing well.
Spread batter in 9X9X2 pan and then sprinkle candies and morsels ontop.
Bake for 25 minutes.
