I’m a huge brownie fan, my absolute favourite being the Fudgepacker from Konditor & Cook – its incredible!! But sometimes a Blondie, just hits the spot. I feel like a Blondie lends itself to a whole world of different flavours, and these white chocolate and pistachio blondies are my new favourite.
I LOVE pistachios. If there’s pistachio ice cream on offer, I’m sold. And if you ever go to Borough Market in London Bridge you HAVE to go to the Comptoir Gourmand stall and try their pistachio financier. Its an absolute delight, and the bright green pistachios give it such a brilliant colour.
I knew I wanted to include pistachio in the blondies and white chocolate seemed like the perfect companion. I’ve packed alottttt of pistachios in these, but the chocolate chips and drizzle give just the right amount of sweetness to cut through.
I like my brownies on the chewy fudgy side rather than cakey, and these are the chewiest I’ve ever made I’m sure! I think the insane amount of pistachios I packed in helped! Do you like the middle more than the edges?? I’m usually a middle kinda girl, but on these I loved the chewy edges. One thing I do need to work on though is getting the whole pan level, for some reason my blondies always rise way bigger at the edges. Anyone else have this problem??
So are you a brownie or blondie fan? I think after this you might be a blondie convert! Or at least a white chocolate and pistachio blondies convert 😉
