Cooking with Kaylie: (Not Quite) Irish Coffee Blondies

Okay, so I know these Irish Coffee Blondies are a week late. To be fair, though, you can eat booze infused treats anytime, right? That’s what I thought, too!

Also, the purist in you may cringe when you see what I used in place of Irish whiskey (hey, my liquor cabinet isn’t that well stocked!), but I guarantee that they were still delicious.

Ingredients
Blondies

  • Nonstick cooking sprayIrish Coffee Blondies Ingredients
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 sticks unsalted butter
  • 2 cups packed light-brown sugar
  • 4 tablespoons freshly ground coffee (I used Caffe Umbria’s Terra Sana Blend)
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Glaze

  • 1 tablespoon melted butter
  • 2 tablespoons Irish whiskey (or, in my case, scotch!)
  • 3/4 cup sugar

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • Spray a 9”x13” pan with the nonstick cooking spray
  • Whisk together flour, baking powder and baking soda
  • Melt the butter and pour into a bowl with the brown sugar, ground coffee and salt
  • Stir to combine, then stir in eggs and vanilla
  • Stir in flour mixture until combined
  • Pour into pan and bake 25-30 minutes
  • Remove from oven when toothpick inserted comes out clean and let cool in pan
  • When blondies are cool, make glaze by combining butter, whiskey and sugar (*Note: The glaze should be thick but pourable, so you may not need all the sugar that is called for)
  • Drizzle glaze over blondies and let dry for 1 hourIrish Coffee Blondies

Now, I wouldn’t recommend eating them right away. The whiskey taste lingers strongly for several hours, which some may not enjoy. However, if you store them overnight, the whiskey taste dissipates, leaving a deliciously sweet and slightly smoky flavor behind.
