Brown Sugar Cashew Blondies

I made these for a school bake sale my niece was participating in and they were a big hit. Very simple and fast to make even kids can do it.

Brown Sugar Cashew Blondies

2 large eggs
2 cups dark brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon corn syrup
1/2 cup melted butter
1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup chopped toasted cashew nuts

Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease bottom of 9" x 13" pan. Sift together flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside.

Beat eggs until lemon-colored and bubbles are very fine. Add in brown sugar, vanilla extract, corn syrup and melted butter. At low mixer speed, slowly add in flour mixture. Fold in nuts by hand.

Transfer to prepared pan. Bake at 350°F for 40 minutes or until light golden brown. Cool completely. Cut into bars.

Makes 30 bars.
