I married my favorite things of late: brown butter and blondies.

After the first bite, I knew I hit the gold mine so I decided to add the brown butter glaze. I mean, why not? Whit such a treat it’s “go all in or not at all”!

These blondies are ridiculously easy to make. The only hard part is to wait for them to cool down. And you have to! These are baked for no longer than 20 minutes. Actually, the magic number for me was 19 minutes. Pull them out, set on a wooden cutting board and walk away. WALK AWAY!

Glazed Brown Butter Blondies

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 18 minutes

Total Time: 38 minutes

Yield: 8"x8" pan; 16 squares or 32 triangle bites

The best blondies you will ever have! Brown butter through and through. Frosting optional but highly recommended.


  1. for blondies:
  2. 1 c all-purpose unbleached flour
  3. 1/2 tsp baking powder
  4. 1/8 tsp baking soda
  5. 1/2 tsp salt
  6. 1/2 c ( 8Tbsp, 1 stick ) unsalted butter
  7. 1 c packed dark brown sugar
  8. 1 large egg
  9. 1 tsp vanilla extract
  10. for glaze:
  11. 1 c confectioners' sugar
  12. 5 Tbsp unsalted butter
  13. 1 tsp milk ( or more if needed )


  1. Spray 8" square baking dish with cooking spray. Line with parchment paper and spray the paper. Set aside.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  3. In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients ( flour, baking powder, soda and salt ).
  4. In a medium saucepan brown 8 tablespoons of butter. Take of the heat and add brown sugar. Whisk until combined. Let cool slightly.
  5. Add egg and whisk well.
  6. Add vanilla extract and whisk again.
  7. Add the dry ingredients all at once and fold in gently with a spatula. Do not over mix. The batter will be thick and sticky.
  8. Spread in prepared baking dish.
  9. Bake 18 to 20 minutes, but no longer than that. Let cool completely before frosting.
  10. For the glaze: sift the confectioners' sugar into a small mixing bowl. Brown the remaining 6 tablespoons of butter. Add to sugar and whisk well. It may look crumbled. Add milk, one teaspoon at a time, until you reach drizzling but still thick consistency. Spread over cooled blondies. Cut into squares or triangles.


For me the magic number was to bake them for exactly 19 minutes. Let them cool completely before frosting and cutting.

  1. brown sugar and butter – putting the two together gives SUCH an impeccable flavor Anna! And I adore blondies. I like them much more than brownies! These look SO dense and soft. And the glaze – always need glaze. I love your photos!

  2. “chewy, dense, melt in your mouth”… those words literally made my mouth water. Really, you had me at “brown butter” These blondies sound amazing!!

  3. Brown butter and blondies, absolute favorites, I agree! I think the baking time is crucial, will try paying more attention to it, I always seem to forget with brownies and cookies, so they never turn out the same twice! That first pic is fantastic

  4. Wow, Anna! I know brown butter makes everything better. But you totally nailed it with these blondies! They look just beautiful. I am certain I could not walk away!

  5. Oh. My. God. These look so delicious! The best part is that I have all the ingredients on hand. I’ll be making these soon. I love blondies and brown butter! This recipe could be dangerous : )

  6. Anna, I love eating blondies but never feel that the ones I make are very good. I probably haven’t found the right recipe yet so I can’t wait to try yours – this looks so dense, moist ‘n chewy. Just what the perfect blondie should be!

    • It took me some experimenting to find the perfect ones. This is it! If you do try them, please let me know what you think. Thanks, Nancy!

  7. Anna, these blondies are out. of. this. world!! Just so you know, I have a die-hard blondie obsession, okay? They’re my preferred dessert over cookies, brownies and the like! And adding brown butter and that luscious glaze on top is both totally brilliant and scary dangerous for a blondie fiend like myself!

  8. Wow! That sounds like quite the challenge. But I know you will do awesome and hopefully will still have a chance to try these :) Thanks, Jen!

  9. OMG. I’m sort of glad these are nowhere near me, I would eat the entire pan and gain 100 pounds. Dangerously delicious looking.

  11. They look wonderful! I made dark brown sugar blondies (that were more dark than blonde!) with butterscotch a couple mos ago & still think about them. These are gorgeous and perfect in every way! Love the browned butter!

  12. These came out amazing! My friend gave up desserts for lent and these were the first things she ate to break her fast after Easter and all she said was “wow what have I been missing out on???” Thank you for the amazing recipe!
