Pink greeting on this Father's Day weekend

 I tried this recipe from a local paper at a cookout and all thought it was yummy. Give it a try for Father's day

Start to finish: 1 hour (20 minutes active). Servings: 9.
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 tablespoon instant coffee
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1 1/2 cups packed light brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup white chocolate bits
  • 1 cup unsalted roasted cashews
Heat the oven to 350 F. Coat a 9-by-9-inch baking pan with cooking spray.
In a medium bowl, combine the water, instant coffee and vanilla. Stir until the coffee granules dissolve.
Add the butter, brown sugar and salt. Use an electric mixer or whisk to beat until light and fluffy. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating between additions and scraping down the sides of the bowl. Stir in the flour, then the white chocolate bits and cashews.
Spread the mixture evenly into the prepared pan. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted at the center comes out clean. Cool, then cut into 9 squares.

  6. Hi Elaine,
    The dessert looks delicious!! and the worry thing is SO true! I hope you've had a nice weekend!!
    Sending ((((hugs))) your way,

  7. Don't think I've ever seen white chocolate chips here. I made cookies yesterday with chickpeas -- they were actually good. Yesterday was 7 years since Sam's mom passed away -- he says he can't believe how 7 years has passed so fast. Time marches on. And worry gets you nowhere. So true! Have a great week. Love, T
