Blonde Brownies

I'm not really much of a sweets person but Chris is so I try to make the occasional dessert to satisfy his need for sugar.  This is a new recipe for me but I think it turned out pretty good.  I'd say it's more of a cookie bar or one of those cookie "cakes" than a brownie and I think I under baked it but it just made it extra ooey and gooey :).  For once, I didn't modify the ingredients AT ALL!  I kind of believe that baking isn't meant to be messed with...though, I did prepare the recipe "lazily" (ie: no sifting, no intermediate mixing...just dumped all my ingredients in a bowl and blended with a mixer!).  An easy recipe for when you need to satisfy your sweet tooth.
