Position an oven rack on the middle rung. Heat the oven to 350 degrees F.

In a medium saucepan over medium heat, heat the butter and brown sugar, stirring frequently, until the sugar has dissolved. Cook, stirring, about 1 minute longer - the mixture will bubble but should not boil. Set the pan aside to cool for about 10 minutes. Meanwhile, butter an 8-inch square pan, line the pan bottom with parchment (or waxed paper), and then butter the parchment.

Stir the egg, egg yolk, and vanilla into the cooled sugar mixture. Add the flour, salt, and nuts, stirring just until blended. Pour the batter into the prepared pan.

Bake until the center is springy when touched (the top may still look doughy) and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean (it's fine if there are a few moist crumbs clinging to it), 25 to 35 minutes. Set the pan on a rack until it’s cool enough to handle.

Run a paring knife around the inside edge of the pan and then invert the pan onto a flat surface and peel off the parchment. Flip the baked brownie back onto the rack to cool completely. Cut into squares with a sharp knife.

NOTE: All recipes can be doubled easily; use a 13x9-inch pan and increase the baking time slightly. The recipes give a range of baking times - use the shorter time for metal pans, the longer for Pyrex pans.

My new favorite Blondie Recipe!
These are so rich and delicious! I stirred in 1/2 cup each of milk & white chocolate chips and 1/2 cup toasted, chopped pecans. I drizzled the dessert plate with a homemade bourbon caramel sauce and placed a blondi in the center. It was gorgeous and got raves from my guests. Would be good with white chocolate chips and dried cherries or cranberries too! YUM!
