White Chocolate, Browned Butter, and Sea Salt Blondies

3/4 cup butter
1 1/2 cups + 2 tbsp. flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla
1 cup pecans, coarsely chopped
4.4oz white chocolate bar, coarsely chopped
Sea Salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Butter and line a 9×9 baking pan with parchment paper with a 2 inch overhang. Set aside.

In a small bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.

Melt butter in a medium saucepan. Simmer and stir butter until it starts to turn brown and foams up. Remove from heat and stir in sugars until smooth. Pour into medium sized mixing bowl. Cool slightly.

Whisk in eggs one at a time, add vanilla, and whisk until smooth. Whisk in flour mixture until just blended. Fold in white chocolate, and spread evenly into prepared pan. Sprinkle chopped nuts evenly over the top, and press lightly.

Bake for 25-28 minutes or until golden brown and toothpick comes out almost clean. Remove from oven and lightly sprinkle with sea salt. Cool completely before cutting into bars.

Makes 1 dozen
