Ginger Blondies

Ginger and butter are secret best friends. Like, we all know ginger hangs out with cardamom, and coconut, and yeah, garlic, but ginger’s got this secret side-bestie. Butter. Just straight up butter. These blondies are the public realization of their friendship and I couldn’t love them any more for it. Chewy, dense, buttery, spiced, and golden brown on top, these are the perfect thing to bring to a potluck when you want to low-key slay.
