Swig Cookie Blondies

Swig Cookie Blondies are sensational. Really. You’ve heard of Swig Sugar Cookies. These are very similar but made into bar form instead. Yes, they certainly are scrumptious. Of course, I just love anything with icing. In fact, I have difficulty stopping when cookies have icing! Truthfully, it would be better to refrigerate the bars a couple of hours before cutting so the icing can set up a little more. Since the icing is made with sour cream, you really need to keep these bars refrigerated after baking them and applying the icing.

Back in early December I made Swig Sugar Cookies for our Christmas in Ovilla gala that our church was hosting for our small town here in Texas. (I include them in my Christmas Cookie Extravaganza). While I made a double batch of the cookies and the icing, I had SO much icing left over that I really didn’t want to throw it away. I decided to make another batch of the cookies into blondies and add some sprinkles (always a winner). I gave them to the young teenage boy who takes care of our dogs when we travel. He’s not a big sweets eater but he enjoys my treats, and I heard they vanished rather rapidly. 🙂

If you’re looking for a divine iced blondie recipe, you’ve got to give Swig Cookie Blondies a try. They’re really to die for. Bring them to any potluck or party and watch them disappear.

I didn’t have time to allow the blondies to refrigerate for several hours before taking pictures. The icing wouldn’t have drizzled down the sides quite so much. 🙂

Sprinkles on top of the blondies add a delicate color and sparkle to these cookies.

 

Here’s what I did.

I used these ingredients for the blondies plus water.

Place softened butter, oil, sugar, powdered sugar, eggs, cream of tartar, baking soda, salt and water in a mixing bowl.

Mix with an electric mixer until smooth.

Add UNBLEACHED all-purpose flour. Bleached flour toughens baked goods.

Stir ingredients with a wooden spoon until combined.

Press ingredients into a greased 9×13″ glass baking dish.

Bake at 350 for 250-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool completely before adding icing.

Add red food coloring and mix again.

Here the icing is ready. Refrigerate until ready to use. (I doubled the ingredients so this is much more icing than the regular amount).

Spread icing over top of cooled blondies. Sprinkle with funfetti sprinkles. Allow bars to set up in refrigerator a couple of hours before cutting into bars.

Instructions
BLONDIES:
  1. Cream together butter, canola oil, sugars, water, eggs, baking soda, cream of tartar and salt.
  2. Add flour and stir with a wooden spoon until thoroughly mixed.
  3. Spread dough into a 9x13” greased glass baking dish.
  4. Bake cookies at 350° for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
  5. Cool completely.
  6. Spread icing over top.
  7. Sprinkle with sprinkles.
  8. Allow icing to set up before cutting.
  9. Refrigerate blondies until ready to serve.
SOUR CREAM ICING:
  1. Cream butter with sour cream, vanilla and salt.
  2. Slowly add powdered sugar.
  3. When the ingredients get really thick add a tablespoon or so of the milk.
  4. Beat until the frosting reaches the desired consistency.
  5. Add 1-2 drops of red food coloring and mix with beater on high for 1 minute.
  6. Spread frosting on top of cooled blondies. Sprinkle with rainbow sprinkles.
  7. Allow icing to set up before storing blondies in the refrigerator.
  8. Cut into 24 bars.
Recipe Notes

NOTE: This recipe works best with mixing the flour in with a wooden spoon. If you try to use an electric mixer it overmixes the ingredients and you have to keep adding additional flour to get the right consistency of the dough.

NOTE: These bars need to be refrigerated about 2 hours after adding the icing so the icing sets up enough and doesn’t drizzle down the sides when cutting.
