Blondie Brownies

Blondies!!   Woohoo I love blondies!  
I have tried and tested a few recipes and this is the one our family has decided is "the one" for us.  I am an almond flavor lover so these have a hint of almond to give them a little boost of yum!
Just waiting to be devoured!
Chocolate chips and white morsels ready to melt in your mouth....

2 1/4 cups of all-purpose flour
2 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1 1/4 cups of granulated sugar
1 1/4 cups of packed brown sugar
3/4 cup of unsalted butter, softened
1 tablespoon of vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon of almond extract
3 eggs
1 cup of semi sweet chocolate chips
1 cup of white morsels or peanut butter chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Grease a cookie sheet or jelly roll pan.

In a small bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and salt.  Set aside.
In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream together the granulated sugar, brown sugar, butter, vanilla extract and almond extract until smooth. 
Beat in the eggs one at a time until combined.
Using a wooden spoon, stir in the flour mixture just until combined. 
Mix in chocolate and white morsel chips.
Spread evenly in prepared pan.  Dough will be thick so you need to use a spatula to spread.

Bake for 25-28 minutes.  If you like a darker, crispy exterior than cook a little longer.  I like a soft center with a light exterior so I so I cook mine for 25 minutes.  
Cool in the pan on a wire rack.  When completely cooled cut into squares and store in an airtight container.  

Tip.  Place a slice of bread in the airtight container with the blondies to keep them soft.  The brownies will draw the moisture from the bread.  Replace the bread when it dries out.
