White Chocolate Strawberry Cheescake Brownies.

I was a little confused as to what to call these divine little morsels. I was told the white chocolate equivalent of a Brownie is a Blondie. Someone else told me this is not the case. The main flavour in a Blondie is butterscotch not chocolate white or brown. In confusion I consulted the great God Google. Sure enough a blondie is made with brown sugar. Using white chocolate instead of brown gives you white brownies. Regardless these turned out to be lovely. A definite keeper. Nice crisp top and a squidgy middle I used my granddaughter's strawberry milkshake to flavour them. This of course drew her like a magnet and I had trouble keeping her away from them.

Granny, I am glad to know I am not the only one who was unsure of the 'rules' regarding the term 'Blondies'. Fortunate are we that the naming has no effect on deliciousness:D No matter what you call them, these must be a delight

Your food looks so delicious and beautiful and I want to come live with you so I can have white chocolate strawberry cheesecake brownies for breakfast every morning!

Good luck with the Blog Awards - I'll be keeping a close eye on this lovely blog in the future.
