Cranberry Pistachio Blondies Recipe
Active time: 20 minutes
Total time: 45 minutes
Preheat oven to 350°. Grease a 9- x 13-inch baking dish with butter.
In a large bowl, mix sugars, butter and salt until combined. Stir in vanilla extract, then eggs, one at a time, until combined. Add flour, baking powder and baking soda, then stir until almost combined. Fold in 1 cup cranberries, 3/4 cup pistachios and 1 cup chocolate chips until combined.
Spread batter into dish and smooth top. Scatter remaining 1/4 cup cranberries and 1/2 cup pistachios on top. Bake until center is just set and a toothpick inserted into center comes out with very moist crumbs, about 25 minutes.
Just before removing from oven, sprinkle remaining 1/2 cup chocolate chips over top and continue baking briefly to soften, about 30 seconds. Cool on a wire rack and cut into bars.
