Individual Slutty Blondies

What’s in a name?  We all have strong opinions about our own names.  Maybe we love them or perhaps we hate them.  They might be so unique we’ve never met anyone with the same or so common we feel like we hear our name all the time.  I have learned to like my name, Laura.  It is unique enough to leave me feeling like an individual, but common enough that people for the most part don’t have trouble pronouncing my name.  Though sometimes I’m not sure why people call me Lara – it’s a different name, everyone.

It’s my middle name that bugs me.  Sorry Mom and Dad, but it’s just so common.  I never use my middle name and try to avoid it as much as possible, but if you are a girl anywhere near my age, I bet you know what I’m talking about and feel my pain.  And I bet there’s a good chance your middle name is Marie.  I wouldn’t change my first name for the world, it’s part of me, but Marie . . . it’s so not.

But there are other names that play a huge role in our lives.  Brand names.  I love designer clothes and shoes and handbags and makeup and on and on.  I am instantly drawn to something with a label I recognize.  Gucci, Prada, Louboutin.  My eyes light up when I see the name and gorgeous product that goes along with it.  Would I love the product as much if it didn’t have that name on it?  I honestly don’t know.

The same goes at the grocery store.  As you can see on my ingredients page, I have certain brands I love and use all the time.  King Arthur Flour, Domino Sugar, McCormick Spices, these brands fill my pantry.  If my regular grocery store is out of or doesn’t stock what I’m looking for, I go to another store, heading out of my way for perhaps only one product, though I’m not sure I’ve ever walked out of any grocery store having bought one thing.  I am very attached to my favorite brands, trusting that the product behind the name is as good as I believe it to be.

So let’s talk about this recipe.  I don’t know where the name Slutty Blondies (or brownies, depending on what kind of batter you put on top) came from, but it caught your attention, didn’t it?  What makes these slutty?  Eating homemade cookies, store bought cookies, and blondies all in one?  Cheating on each of the desserts?  Making a dessert recipe that has three and a half sticks of butter?  I really don’t know, but I can tell you these are certainly delicious.

I took spicy gingerbread cookie dough and placed it on the bottom, followed by an Oreo.  I used leftover Gingerbread ones which should totally be a year round staple, but Golden Oreos would also work.  I would not go for the Double Stuffed ones – too much filling.  And topped the whole thing with my favorite blondie batter.

The end result?  A wonderful mix of sweet and spicy flavors.  But it is the textures that really make this treat sing.  The edges of the blondie get crispy, while the inside is still slightly gooey.  The Oreo is as crunchy as ever, and that gingerbread cookie bottom is soft and moist.  A word of caution: these can only be made in muffin tins.  It is too much batter to bake all the way through in a 9 by 13.  Trust me, I tried.  I also tried replacing the Oreo with a caramel or a marshmallow in a few of these.  The marshmallow did not work at all, but the caramel was quite good.  I’d stick with the Oreos though.  No matter your name or whether you think calling these Slutty Blondies is cute or not, give them a try.  Your taste buds with thank you.

Total time: 
Serves: 22
 
Ingredients
Gingerbread Cookie
  • 1 ½ sticks unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 2 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 ¼ teaspoons baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 tablespoon ground ginger
  • ½ teaspoon ground allspice
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • ½ cup packed dark brown sugar
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 6 tablespoons cane syrup or molasses
  • 1 large egg
  • 22 Golden Oreo Cookies
Blondies
  • 2 sticks unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 cups packed light brown sugar
  • 4 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Butter 22 muffin cups in 2 muffin tins generously.
  2. Make the cookie base. In a medium bowl, stir together flour, baking soda, salt, ginger, allspice, and pepper. In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugars until light and fluffy. I did this by hand, but a hand or stand mixer would work as well. Mix in the cane syrup or molasses and egg until once again light and fluffy. Stir in flour mixture just until a very thick dough is formed. Take a couple tablespoons of dough and press them into the bottom of each muffin cup, making sure to cover it completely. Press an Oreo gently but firmly into the center of each muffin cup with cookie dough.
  3. Make the blondies. In a medium bowl, stir together flour and salt. In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugars until light and fluffy. I also did this by hand, but a hand or stand mixer would work as well. Add in the eggs and vanilla and mix until once again light and fluffy. Stir in the flour mixture until just combined. Spoon batter over Oreo cookies and cookie base, covering completely and filling just to the top of the muffin cup. Bake for about 30 minutes, rotating halfway through if necessary, until a toothpick inserted in the center of the blondies comes out with only a few moist crumbs. Cool completely in pan. When cool, gently loosen from pans and enjoy! May be stored in airtight containers at room temperature for up to 3 days, or frozen, wrapped in parchment and foil and placed in zipper bags for up to 4 months. Thaw at room temperature for several hours or in a 350 degree F oven for about 15 minutes.

    These are really good. I liked the gingerbread flavor added in.

  5. Eric says:

  7. I’ve heard of slutty brownies but I’ve never seen the slutty blondies before!!! They look soooooooo delicious!

  8. Dad says:

    These are great.

  9. Natalie says:

    Love the hidden golden oreo in this, what a delightful surprise!

  10. sal says:

    I DONT THINK YOU CAN MAKE A BAD BLONDIE THEY HAVE ALL TASTED GREAT THIS ONE WAS NO EXCEPTION.

  11. andy says:

    What’s the old saying, you are what you eat…well not in this case! These are full of great flavors, one in every layer. I liked the different textures too, you never knew what to expect. Thanks for sharing,

  12. carol says:

    You had us all fooled, no one could guess what was in the middle. I liked the different textures and colors, quite interesting. Best of all was the taste, a little sugar and a little spice made everything real nice! Thank you.

  13. mike says:

    I like oreos, so these were really good. The mix of flavors was a great combination. The title raised a few eyebrows, but worth every bite!

  14. This name gets me every time when I see it around the internet! I’ve never had them, but I can only imagine how amazing they are. :)

  15. Jessica says:

    These were incredible! I would have never guessed that Oreos were involved in this recipe!

  16. these just look so amazing and tasty !
    I love the combinations

  17. Where have I been? I didn’t even know they make golden oreos? These look really good but which are better of the last two you posted? I need help here. And I like the name Laura and Marie. My middle name is Lyn and I can’t say I ever use that!

    • Laura says:

      Golden Oreos are the best! They are probably my favorite store bought cookie. I love both of the last two recipes, but those Sticky Toffee Muffins are really something special. Thanks, Abbe!

  18. What a genius combination! I love the name. I’ve never even heard of slutty brownies!

  19. HAH.. my friend Bec makes slutty brownies often and I thought she had made up the name to be cheeky. Didn’t realize these were everywhere :) and with good reason, they’re so good. Love the blondie twist!

  20. kristy says:

    My favorite part is the fact that they are baked as a muffin. I loved how the muffin top just fell right off. And I was trying so hard to figure out what was in the center cuz it tasted like brown sugar and cinnamon, which I was liking, lol. But, as usual, these were fantastic and I lived the flovor :) Thank you

    • Laura says:

      I love that these are single serving too, Kristy! It’s more fun when you don’t have to share ;) Those Oreos have really fantastic flavor. I’m glad you enjoyed the treat!

  21. Linda says:

    These were interesting. Since I tend to nibble on my food, I found I was eating layers of flavor. Each nibble giving its own essence of it’s content. Sweet, gingery, and Oreo. Very good!

  22. These are genius!

  23. Jackie says:

    Very different, I enjoyed them! I’ve never been one to understand labels. Whether the label is clothing, cars or even people…it is something that has confused me. Just because a word is placed on something shouldn’t be important. I would rather give my money to needy animals or children than a “name”.

    • Laura says:

      Glad you liked them, Jackie! I totally agree that labeling people is such a bad thing. I didn’t even think of that when I was writing. It puts people in boxes and can make life really difficult.

  24. Ha-ha! Love the name – Slutty Blondies!

  25. Hank says:

    I don’t care what you call this thing, all I know is that it tasted fantastic and I was left wishing I had more of it. I do believe this is the best treat yet but then, I feel that way about each and every one. Thanks for taking such good care of me Laura.
