Peanut Butter White Chocolate Blondies

I came across this recipe last night and although I have a great blondie recipe I make quite often, I thought it would be fun to try something different.
The recipe comes from Rachel Allen. She has a show, apparently, on the Cooking Channel called "Bake!" I'd never heard of her before I stumbled upon this blondie recipe but I checked out some of her other recipes and they sound worth trying, too..another time!

This blondie has chopped white chocolate in it but I made mine with white chocolate chips because I didn't want to waste my good white chocolate if the recipe didn't turn out well. That makes sense, right!? After I had put it all together, I got to thinking that dark chocolate with the peanut butter may have been a better choice so next time I make it, I'll replace the white chocolate with semisweet chocolate.
The blondie is really very good. It's nice and moist and the peanut butter taste isn't too overwhelming. I only had dark brown sugar, rather than light brown, but I don't think it made much of a difference.

It goes together in only a few steps so it's a quick and easy recipe, too!
Just spread it out into an 8" x 8" pan lined with parchment paper.

And bake for about 25 to 30 minutes or til a toothpick comes out clean.
Let it cool in the pan about an hour, then lift it out...

And cut into sizes you'd like.
