walnut orange blondies from "Fat Witch Brownies" cookbook

This recipe is adapted from the "Fat Witch Brownies" cookbook, written by the New York City bakery owner.

The orange zest and orange juice leave these blondies bursting with a fresh, fruity flavor.

Orange Blondies
Melt over low heat and cool slightly:
1 stick butter
1 3/4 c light brown sugar

2 eggs
2 T fresh orange juice
1 t vanilla

Sift into bowl, then add dry mixture to butter/egg mixture:
1 3/4 c all purpose flour
1/2 t baking powder
1/2 t salt

Stir in:
1 T grated orange zest
1/2 c. toasted walnuts, chopped

Bake in parchment lined 9x9 pan at 350 degrees about 30 minutes until toothpick tests clean. Cool at least 1 hour before cutting....or not...

The top of the brownies will form a paper-thin crispy layer.
