Strawberry Blondies with Cream cheese Frosting

With Valentines Day fast approaching, its time for another

Strawberry Recipe!

This recipe will make 9 blondies, but feel free to double it to make 18. I used freeze-dried strawberries to add strawberry flavor. I discovered freeze-dried strawberries last year and they have been a game changer for my strawberry desserts. They are a great way to add natural strawberry flavor without ruining the texture or using something artificial! Using pureed strawberries is great, but some times they make a mixture too wet.

Ingredients


Strawberry Blondies:
  • 12 oz butter, room temperature
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 1/4 cups flour
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • 1 oz freeze dried strawberries, finely grounded
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature

  • Cream cheese Frosting:
  • 3 oz unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 4 oz cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar

  • Directions

    1. Preheat oven to 350F.
    2. Sift together the flour, baking powder, salt, and ground freeze-dried strawberries. (I use a 1.2 oz bag from Trader Joes and grind them in a food processor).
    3. In a separate bowl cream the butter, about 1-2 minutes. Beat in the sugar, another 1-2 minutes. Beat in the vanilla. Beat in each egg one at a time, until incorporated.Slowly beat in the flour mixture.
    4. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until the center no longer jiggles and edges start to turn golden brown.
    5. For the frosting, cream together the butter and cream cheese with an electric mixer. Beat in the vanilla and powdered sugar. Use a knife or spatula to spread on top of the blondies, once cooled. Top with your favorite sprinkles!
