    Ingredients
    Blondies
    • 1 1/2cups flour
    • 1teaspoon baking powder
    • 1/2teaspoon salt
    • 1 1/2cups lightor medium brown sugar, packed
    • 12tablespoons salted butter, melted and cooled
    • 2 large eggs
    • 1 1/2tablespoons vanilla extract
    • 1 1/2cup pecans, coarsely chopped, divided
    • 3/4cups sweetened coconut flakes, divided
    • 3/4cup butterscotch chips
    Butterscotch Glaze
    • 8tablespoons butter
    • 2/3cups light or medium brown sugar
    • 2tablespoons corn syrup
    • 2tablespoons water
    • 1/2teaspoon vanilla
    Instructions
    1. Heat oven to 350F degrees. Add coconut to one half of a baking sheet and pecans to the other half. Bake for 5-7 minutes, or until coconut is golden, stirring occasionally.
    2. Spray a 9×13 baking dish with nonstick baking spray or to easily remove blondies, line baking dish with overhanging foil and spray with nonstick spray. Set aside.
    3. Whisk flour, baking powder and salt together in medium bowl; set aside.
    4. Whisk sugar and melted butter in a separate medium bowl until combined. Mix in eggs and vanilla until well combined. Using a rubber spatula, fold flour mixture into egg mixture just until combined. Do not overmix. Fold in 1 cup pecans, 1/2 cup coconut and 3/4 cup butterscotch chips.
    5. Bake for 22-25 minutes or until cooked through, taking care not to overcook. Let blondies cool completely in the pan on a wire rack.
    6. Once cool, add all of the Butterscotch Glaze ingredients to small heavy saucepan over medium heat and continue to stir until butter is melted. Bring to a boil and continue to simmer over medium high heat (it will bubble a lot) until slightly thickened, about 90 seconds. Remove from heat and as soon as bubble subsides, pour all over blondies and spread immediately with a rubber spatula (before it hardens). Immediately sprinkle Glaze with 1/2 cup pecans and 1/4 cup coconut. Once Glaze has set (about 15 minutes), cut into small squares to serve.
    7. Store in an airtight container.
