  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 1/2 c. packed brown sugar
  • 3/4 c. unsalted butter melted and cooled
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tsp. maple extract
  • 1 c. chopped pecans

For frosting:
  • 1 - 8 oz. package reduced-fat cream cheese softened

  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together brown sugar, butter, eggs, and maple extract.
  3. Fold the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, mixing until just combined.
  4. Fold in the pecans being careful not to overmix. The mixture will be quite thick.

  6. Spread batter evenly into the bottom of the pan.
  7. Bake at 350 degrees for 22-25 minutes, or until edges are golden brown, the top is shiny and crackled, and a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.
  8. Cool completely in pan on a wire rack.
  9. Carefully lift the blondies out of the pan with the foil edges.


For frosting:

  1. In a large mixing bowl, beat cream cheese and butter until fluffy.
  2. Add powdered sugar and extracts, beating until combined.
  3. Add 1 tbsp. milk, and beat until combined, adding more milk as needed to achieve desired consistency.
  4. Beat for 3-4 minutes, or until light and fluffy.
