Ostara: Spring Blondies

Tomorrow it is officially Ostara. So if you want to do some baking, why not try these blondies? They have a touch of spring because of the pastel colored Smarties I used. So they will look very festive on your Ostara or Easter table. The original recipe uses M&M's but I choose for Smarties because of their color and sadly they don't sell Easter M&M's over here. The recipe comes from Inside Bru Crew Life. Nick and I found them a little too sweet though, so next time we will use less sugar. I already adapted this in the recipe below. We will do some more Ostara cooking on the day itself, so there will be some more recipes next week.

Spring Blondies: (makes 24)
- 0.5 cup butter, softened
- 1.5 cup brown sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 tsp salt
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 2 cups flour
- 1.5 cups Smarties

Pre heat the oven to 180 degrees.
Beat the butter with the sugar until it is creamy. Add eggs and vanilla and beat once more. In another bowl, sift the flour, salt and baking powder and stir through. Slowly mix in the dry ingredients with the wet. Stir in 1 cup of the Smarties.

Line an oven dish with a sheet of parchment paper. And spread in the mixture. Sprinkle the rest of the Smarties on top. Bake for 25-30 minutes, depending n your oven.
