  • 1/3 cup light or dark brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted

  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • Pinch salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla

    Heat oven to 350°F. Spray 13x9-inch pan with cooking spray, or line with cooking parchment paper.
  • 2
    In large bowl, mix blondie bar ingredients. Batter will be very thick. Spread evenly in pan.

  • 4
    Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until edges are golden brown and center is dry. Cool completely, about 1 hour.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    For easy cutting, line pan with parchment paper with overhanging sides. Once blondies have cooled, use parchment paper to lift them out of pan. Transfer to cutting board, and cut into bars.
  • tip 2
    For silky smooth frosting, sift powdered sugar before mixing.
