  •  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.
