Ingredients

Blondies:

  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup flour

Cinnamon Swirl:

  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

Frosting:

  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 cups powdered sugar

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°. Line an 8x8 baking dish with foil and spray with cooking spray.
  2. For the Blondies: In a large bowl, cream together the melted butter and brown sugar. Add the egg and vanilla and mix until combined. Add the salt and flour and mix until smooth. Spread mixture in the prepared pan.
  3. For the Filling: In a small bowl, combine the butter, brown sugar, and cinnamon. Spoon dollops of the mixture over the blondie batter. With a knife, swirl the mixture into the batter.
  4. Bake for 23-28 minutes or until center isn't jiggly (mine was done at 23 minutes but my oven cooks fast). Cool completely.
  5. For the frosting: In a medium bowl, combine the cream cheese, butter, vanilla, and powdered sugar. Once the ingredients have combined, whip the frosting until fluffy. If your ingredients are softened you shouldn't have to add any milk but you can add a dash if needed.
  6. Frost the cooled blondies and sprinkle with additional cinnamon if desired.
