    Wow! I made these tonight and am blown away by how easy and how DELICIOUS this recipe is! Thank you, Jenny, for this great recipe. It has made me a fan!

    Hi Jenny, do you think I’d be able to substitute the butter with additional vegetable oil instead..? because I need the dessert to be dairy free..

    I apologize for my typo indicating using only 1/2 cup of flour. This recipe calls for one cup of flour total (either one cup of all purpose flour or 1/2 cup each of all purpose and whole wheat pastry flours). The recipe has been corrected, calling for one cup of flour. 😳

    Thank you for this simple, but delicious recipe – chocolate cookies without the trouble. I did not have the whole wheat flour, so I just used one cup of all purpose white flour and these had a wonderful taste as well as a nice consistency.

      Mary,

      I believe the recipe calls for only 1/2 cup of flour (1/4 cup each if using a mixture of all-purpose and whole wheat)… interesting that your blondies turned out OK using a full cup of flour!

        Beth, THANK YOU for your comment about the flour. It was a typo and should have been one cup of flour. I have corrected the recipe.

    I cannot find whole wheat pastry flour – can I use reg whole wheat or white all purp flour? Or is there a substitute easier to find?

    • Amy

      I was wondering the same about the whole wheat pasty flour. I cannot find it at my local grocery store.

    • Nikta

    JENNY, I LOVE YOUR BUNS LOL AND BREAD!!! THANKS SO MUCH FOR YOUR VIDEO ON ARTISAN BREAD IN THE SHORTEST POSSIBLE TIME I HAVE EVER SEEN!!! I ADDED SOME OTHER FLOURS FOR DIFFERENT TEXTURE. SOME SEMOLINA, FOR A CRUSTY (SUB. OUT FLOUR). OR SELF RISING FLOUR, OR STICK WITH ALL PURPOSE WHEN IN DOUBT.

    RESPECTFULLY
