I was a blondie with dark roots up until last Friday. My hair is looking much better. I really like the make up of a blondie and probably like them better then brownies but, I can't seem to find the exact recipe to nail the blondie. These are good and are even better the next day. They are a little cakey then I would like but, the chocolate and the coconut makes these moist bars taste like a big samoa cookie. I love samoas so, no complaints from me. Next time to make it even more samoa like I will just up the coconut and dark chocolate chips and forget the butterscotch.

- Cooking spray
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 5 1/3 tablespoons ( 1/3 cup) unsalted butter, at room temperature
- 3 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
- 1 cup packed light brown sugar
- 1 large egg
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup sweetened shredded coconut
- 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips or chunks
- 1/2 cup butterscotch chips
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Mist an 8-inch-square glass baking dish with cooking spray. Whisk the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a small bowl.
Beat the butter and cream cheese in a large bowl with a mixer at medium speed until fluffy. Add the brown sugar and beat 3 to 4 more minutes. Beat in the egg and vanilla. Add the flour mixture and mix on low speed until just combined. Fold in the coconut and chips with a wooden spoon.
Spread the batter in the prepared pan and bake until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 35 to 40 minutes. Let cool 20 minutes in the pan before slicing.
