Coconut Pecan Blondies

Here's a classic white chocolate brownie that I've entered in the state fair and frequently made for the men I work with- I'm a landscaper. I enjoy munching on these while cheering on my alma mater, Ohio State University.

    At first I thought the blondies were undercooked because I followed the recipe saying the inserted toothpick should have moist crumbs on it, however, when cooled, these blondies were not overly moist and were a big hit

    I serve homemade treats weekly to our church preschool parents. These melt in your mouth blondies are definitely a favorite.
