Chocolate Chip Pecan Blondies




It's the season for nuts and chocolate!  I am so happy the wonderful people at Schermer's Pecans sent me a case of pecans for recipe development.

My first creation with Schermer's Pecans were my Pecan Waffles and Chicken which were a big hit with my family, they loved the sweet and savory balance of eating fried chicken with buttermilk pecan waffles.


I decided to focus solely on sweet eats today. I accomplished this with my Chocolate Chip Pecan Blondies!


This is a really simple recipe that is great for a non-baker to make. Don't forget, add the flour in batches.

I always take the last batch of flour and toss my nuts and chocolate chips in. It stops them from sinking to the bottom of the batter.


After about 30 minutes you have a nice sweet treat!


I take my Blondies and dunk them in a big glass of ice cold organic milk!

I must confess I love great food. I decided to create The Creole Contessa blog after cooking and eating a great meal with my family Big Goo the hubby of almost twenty years and my lil’ Contessa Summer aka “Baby Girl." I told Big Goo and Baby Girl, it is just not fair to not share these great recipes with the world; and the Creole Contessa blog was born.
