Chocolate Chip Blondie's

I'm not usually a baker or a dessert person but every once in a while we bake around here and of course, my stepdaughter Emma pitches in. So yesterday we made blondies and they were great. We used Lovestoeat's idea of mixing white and milk chocolate chips. Great dessert. We really liked them!

This recipe originated from Cooking Light, although with the amount of butter in it, there's nothing "light" about them. This is definitely more Paula Deen-esque

3/4 cup butter, at room temperature
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
1- 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
3 large eggs
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 cup white chocolate chips
3/4 cup chocolate chips

1. In a bowl, with a mixer on medium speed, beat butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar until smooth. Add vanilla and eggs and beat until well blended.

2. Stir in flour, salt, and baking soda until well combined. Stir in butterscotch chips, chocolate chips, and walnuts. Butter a 9- by 13-inch baking pan and spread dough level in pan.

3. Bake in a 350° regular or convection oven until top is browned and a wooden skewer inserted in center comes out with moist crumbs attached, about 30 minutes. Cool on a rack for 15 minutes, then cut into 24 rectangles. Serve warm or cool.
