Can't get enough maple? This recipe uses syrup, sugar, candy, and spread!
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup maple sugar
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
8 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and cooled
1/2 cup grade B maple syrup
2 large eggs, room temperature
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 ounces maple sugar candy, chopped
Heat oven to 350°F. Grease a 9x13 or 8x8 (for thicker) pan with butter or baking spray.
In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, maple sugar, salt, and baking soda. In a separate bowl, whisk together the melted butter, maple syrup, eggs, and vanilla extract. Pour the liquid mixture into the dry ingredients, and fold together quickly and firmly until completely combined. Fold in the chopped maple sugar candy.
Spread the batter in the prepared pan. It will be quite thick and sticky. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes, or until the center is just barely cooked and set. The blondies will be soft still.
Let set for at least an hour. Spread a thin layer of maple spread and refrigerate.
