Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. and grease a 9" x 13" baking pan.
Melt the butter in a saucepan and add the chopped pecans. Cook over medium-low heat until the pecans are toasted and the butter turns brown, stirring frequently. About 15 minutes.
Set a mesh strainer over, a bowl and strain the pecans from the butter, then chill the butter for about 20 minutes.
Cream the chilled butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy, for about 3 minutes. Add the golden syrup and mix until incorporated.
Beat in the eggs and vanilla until combined
Add the dry ingredients and pecans and mix until just combined.
Pour mixture into the prepared pan. Bake for 35 - 40 minutes until nice and golden brown.
Combine the glaze ingredients and drizzle over the blondies when cooled.
Store the cooled blondies in an airtight container for 3 days. You can also store the blondies in the container for longer in the refrigerator.
About the pecans, I find it easier to buy the prechopped pecans, but if you cannot find them use the whole or halved pecans and chop them yourself.
