This recipe is converted from my Gramma’s blondie brownie recipe. Right before I got married, she gave me a little book of handwritten recipes. The book was filled with all her favorites that she had cooked over the years. These wooden spoon blondies are the first recipe in the dessert section.
So many years later, that recipe book is still one of my prized possessions. When I miss her, I will read through the recipes and take a walk through my memories.
When I bake these blondies the smell takes me back to when we were together in her kitchen. I can still see her dancing in her frilly white apron over to her ridiculously tiny oven, to check on her blondies.
Gramma made these blondies all the time, whether we were going to someone’s house, expecting company or going camping. If there was a crowd, you knew that she would be baking these.
The last line that Gramma wrote on my recipe card says that all mixing must be done with a wooden spoon. I will be honest with you, I never asked her why I had to use a wooden spoon, but I have never made these blondies any other way.
No mixer needed, just a bowl and a wooden spoon.
