Welcome!

Welcome to Simple Fare, Fairly Simple. This is a place for me to post recipes of all kinds...along with other miscellaneous fodder from my so-called life here in the south. Who knows what you will find here. Could be anything from my husband...known as IT Guy...to my kids and beautiful grandbabies that are growing up way too fast right before my eyes. But...mostly this will be a place for food. I hope you'll see something you like and if you decide to try something from the list...leave me a comment and let me know!

This little dessert is so easy to make. It's a basic cookie recipe made in a pan instead of as cookies, then cut into bars. But served with the sauce makes it indescribable! Served warm, these little beauties will have your eyes rolling back in your head. When I made this, they only lasted a few days before they disappeared. Make it for company! Served in cute little dishes, your guests will think you've been cooking all day!!

Blondie Brownies

3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 cup butter - softened
1 teaspoon vanilla

2 1/4 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 12-ounce package white chocolate chips
1 cup coarsely chopped pecans

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9x13 inch pan.

Combine sugars, butter and vanilla in mixer and blend until fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, until well combined.

Add flour, salt and baking powder and mix well. Stir in white chocolate chips and pecans.

Spread mixture into prepared pan. Bake for about 30 minutes or until lightly golden and center does not jiggle. Remove from oven and allow to cool in pan on a wire rack. Cut into bars and serve with white chocolate sauce and vanilla ice cream.

White Chocolate sauce

1 can sweetened condensed milk
6 ounces chocolate chips
2 tablespoon butter

In a small saucepan, heat condensed milk until warm. Do not boil. Add white chocolate and butter and stir until creamy. Serve with White Blondie Brownies and ice cream. Sprinkle with chopped pecans.




Here's everything. Except the pecans. 
Not sure where they ran off to.
 

Cream together the butter and sugars.
 

Oh yeah...and the vanilla.
 

Add the eggs.
 

Mix in the dry stuff.
 

Stir in the white chocolate and the pecans.
 

Spread into a pan and bake!
 

For the sauce...easy-peasy. Just heat up the sweetened condensed milk then add the 6 ounces of white chocolate chips and the butter. Stir until all creamy and delicious then drizzle it over your cut brownies. Don't forget the ice cream and more pecans!!!
