When my husband and I started dating, it quickly became known that he does not have the same sweet tooth that I do. I rarely leave a restaurant without trying a dessert. I love sweets and I love to try new ones. However, the Butter Maple Blondies at Applebee’s are a different story. He loves them and he doesn’t share.
This is the second time I have made these Butter Maple Blondies for my family. These tasty treats are filled with white chocolate and pecans and smothered in a sauce made with sour cream and maple syrup. We all know how I feel about sour cream. The butter flavor is amazing and my husband claims they taste just like the Blondies at Applebee’s. These are so decadent! I mean…….look at all that buttery maple drizzle and ice cream just staring from the plate. It’s a beautiful thing….very beautiful.
I like to serve these warmed up with Butter Pecan ice cream (Praline ice cream is a great match as well). Save the left over sauce in the refrigerator to have on ice cream and pancakes. I may or may not have topped my oatmeal with some of the sauce, you know, just to test it out. I’ts amazing!!
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease an 8X8 baking dish and set aside.
To make the blondies, beat the butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs and vanilla and mix well.
Gradually add in the flour, baking powder, and salt. Mix until well incorporated.
Stir in pecans and white chocolate chips.
Pour the batter into the greased baking dish and bake for 30-45 minutes until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Let cool while making the maple sauce.
To make the sauce, whisk together the granulated sugar, maple syrup, and butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Let the sauce simmer for 2-3 minutes and remove from heat. Let it cool for a minute or two. Whisk in the sour cream and vanilla.
But the Butter Maple Blondies and serve with a scoop of Butter Pecan ice cream and drizzle with Maple Butter Sauce.
