Serves: 12 blondies
Ingredients
For the blondies:
  • 12 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and cooled
  • 1 ½ cup brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs, at room temperature and lightly beaten
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 cup butterscotch chips
  • ¼ cup bourbon
For the bourbon buttercream
  • 1 cup unsalted butter (16 tablespoons)
  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 tablespoons bourbon
  • 1 teaspoon heavy cream
Instructions
For the blondies:
  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease a 9” by 13” baking pan with butter. Line it with aluminum foil, leaving enough overhang to allow you to lift the brownies out when they’re done, then butter the foil.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the butter and sugar until smooth. Add the eggs and vanilla and whisk to combine.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Pour the dry ingredients into the wet, and stir gently with a rubber spatula until no traces of the flour remain. Gently stir in the butterscotch chips.
  4. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake for 20 to 25 minutes, until the center is barely set. Allow the blondies to cool in the pan on a wire rack before removing and cutting.
For the bourbon buttercream frosting:
  1. Add the butter to a large bowl and beat it on medium-high speed with a hand mixer until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes.
  2. Add the powdered sugar, one cup at a time, making sure each addition has been totally incorporated before adding the next.
  3. Add the bourbon, vanilla, and heavy cream and mix on medium speed until the frosting is silky and light. Spread the frosting on the cooled brownies and serve.
