Bear's Anecdote - Bear doesn't particularly care for sweets---He's a carnivore---but one time he was actually prowling for sweets and found this recipe. It is far less sickly sweet than other recipes, and is therefore pretty darn good! So, on those rare occasions when Bear bakes something, this is one of his favorites.
A note about blondie pans: Blondie recipes always do better when using VERY shiny aluminum blondies pans. Shiny aluminum blondie pans do not accept or transmit heat as well as oxidized ones. So, the bottoms of the blondies are a bit more protected from the direct heat of the oven burners. Dull, oxidized blondie pans will lead to blondies with burnt undersides. Bear has not had much luck with steel blondie pans, either.
