Run The Option

Derby-style blonde brownies are a great way to devour the competition. Expect a cake-like texture in these sinfully rich tailgating treats that won’t last past the half. For a more traditional approach to the signature horse race pie classic, make an equal substitution of walnuts in place of the pecans.

1/2 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup dark brown sugar
1 egg
3 Tbsp bourbon
1 Tbsp molasses
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 3/4 cups all purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp kosher salt
1 cup bittersweet chocolate morsels, divided
3/4 cup pecan halves, coarsely chopped

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a 13 x 9-inch baking pan with cooking spray. Line the pan with foil or parchment paper & lightly grease the foil. Set aside. Cream the butter & the sugar using a stand mixer on Medium speed until light & airy, about 4 minutes. Stop the mixer occasionally & scrape down the bowl sides with a rubber spatula. Add the egg & blend on Low speed. Add the bourbon, the molasses & the vanilla extract. Blend on Medium-Low speed just until the mixture becomes smooth. Whisk together the flour, the baking soda & the salt in a small bowl. Add to the butter mixture & blend on Low speed just until combined. Fold in 1/2 cup chocolate morsels with a rubber spatula. Spread the dough into the prepared pan using an offset spatula. The mixture will be thin. Sprinkle the remaining 1/2 cup chocolate morsels & the pecans over the surface, pressing lightly into the dough. Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until lightly browned on the edges. The center should be just set. Do not over bake. Cool completely. Cut into bars.

The Extra Point

Top the blondies with a scoop of premium vanilla ice cream & drizzle with homemade caramel sauce to take this dessert over the goal line.

How To Elevate A Pan Of Bar Cookies

Huddle key players for a beautiful finish.
Reserve a handful of ingredients such as the chocolate & the pecans to press into the top of the dough.
Once baked, allow the bars to cool completely.

The Technique

Use a chef knife to make clean cuts into neat & tidy squares.
Gently lift the bars out of the pan with a small offset spatula. Stack on a simple white plate before serving.
