10 T. unsalted butter
1 cup dark brown sugar, packed
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg
2 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 t. salt
1 1/4 cup flour
1 1/4 cup sweetened flaked coconut
1 1/4 cup semisweet or milk chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line and grease an 8×8” baking dish.
In a pan over high heat, heat the butter until it browns and smells nutty. (Keep an eye on it, so it doesn’t burn.) Let the butter cool for a few moments, until just barely warm.
In a large mixing bowl, mix together the browned butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar. With a wooden spoon, mix in the egg, vanilla, and salt. Slowly mix in the flour, coconut, and chocolate chips until blended.
Pour the batter into the greased baking dish, and smooth the top with a rubber spatula. Bake for 25-30 minutes—do not overbake! The center should still be soft. Let the blondies cool before turning them out onto a cutting board and slicing into squares
