I have been making these blondies since 2007. My mom and I went on a trip to New York and I was obsessed with Sex & the City. We took the Sex & the City tour of New York which included a stop to Magnolia Bakery and I fell in love.
Since these blondies have been on my menu for years, always with a few variations, I depend on the same core recipe. The original recipe comes from the Magnolia cookbook. I'm a little more free with the recipe than they are. You can mix up the add ins for a different bar (white chocolate cranberry blondies anyone?).
I made them for Valentines Day and gave half of them away so that we would eat them. For those of you following Weight Watchers these are 11 sp (which is why I gave a ton away).
