Step-by-Step Instructions for Making Pecan Pie Blondies:

1. Prepare the Blondie Batter

  • Preheat Oven: Begin by preheating your oven to 350°F (175°C) and greasing a 9×13-inch baking dish.
  • Cream Butter and Sugar: In a mixing bowl, cream together the butter and dark brown sugar until they achieve a light and fluffy consistency.
  • Incorporate Vanilla and Eggs: Beat in the vanilla extract and eggs until thoroughly combined.
  • Add Dry Ingredients: Gradually incorporate the baking powder, baking soda, salt, and flour into the wet mixture, stirring until a smooth batter forms.
  • Fold in Pecans: Gently fold in 1 cup of chopped pecans until they are evenly distributed throughout the batter.

2. Prepare the Pecan Pie Filling

  • Melt Butter: In a saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat.
  • Combine Ingredients: Stir in the lightly beaten eggs, dark brown sugar, light corn syrup, and vanilla extract until the mixture achieves a smooth and cohesive texture.

3. Assemble and Bake

  • Layer Batter and Filling: Spread half of the blondie batter evenly into the prepared baking dish. Pour the pecan pie filling over the batter, ensuring it forms an even layer. Top with the remaining blondie batter, spreading it carefully to cover the filling.
  • Add Pecan Pie Pieces: Sprinkle the chopped pecan pie tartlets or prepared pecan pie pieces over the top of the batter.
  • Bake: Place the baking dish in the preheated oven and bake for 30-35 minutes, or until the blondies are fully set and golden brown on top.
  • Cool and Serve: Allow the blondies to cool in the baking dish for at least 20 minutes before slicing them into squares. Serve them warm or at room temperature for an exquisite dessert experience.
