I tend to always make chocolate desserts but today I wanted to change it up and make a super tasty dessert that does not contain any chocolate.
I really like Blondies so I decided to start with a blondie base and go from there.
I added some sour cherries to my basic Blondie recipe to create this new treat.
I started by combining some light brown sugar with melted butter, an egg, vanilla and salt.
I used a wooden spoon to mix the ingredients together until no lumps remained.
Then I added some flour and baking powder and continued mixing.
I stirred in the pitted sour cherries last and was careful not to stir too much as the cherries break apart fairly easily and I wanted to try to keep them intact.
I poured the mixture into a greased eight inch square pan and spread it out evenly.
Then I baked the blondies until a toothpick inserted in the center came out clean.
I allowed the blondies to cool before slicing and serving.
If you try to cut them too soon they will just fall apart and you will have a huge mess.
These turned out amazing!
I love the combination of the toffee flavour of the blondies mixed with the tart sweetness of the cherries.
These squares are one of my new favourite desserts.
