When asked to bring a dessert for my boys' football team to share, I whipped up these unique blondies and was instantly named "the greatest mom" by all. Wrap them up creatively to make super festive; they'll be a surefire hit with friends and family too. —Valonda Seward, Coarsegold, California

    "These are delicious! I used a 9x13 pan and mixed a whole bag of cinnamon chips in the batter. 25 minutes worked in my oven. The pan is nearly cleared out 24 hours later!"

    "I think the 'test kitchen' needs to change the recipe to the way it was submitted. I used a 9x13 pan and couldn't imagine using a smaller pan, these were perfect. I did have to bake closer to 30mins but I think that's because I didn't smooth it completely so one side was a bit thicker."

    "Wish I had read all the reviews before making! These have a great flavor, but the main recipe needs to be changed to reflect baking in a larger pan. Mine sunk in the I was putting the batter in the pan I thought to myself there was too much batter and it was too thick for such a small pan."

    "I'm a stickler on making recipes as written the first time I make them, but I saw the comment from the author saying that the original recipe used a 9x13 pan. So I used that and baked for 25 min. Wonderful! Not incredibly moist, but not dry either. I'm not even a big snickerdoodle fan, and I can't stop eating these."
