Peach Caramel Blondies

September 10, 2018Teresa

Peach Caramel Blondies are such mouthwatering cookies you won’t want to stop eating them! They start with loads of fresh peaches and Ghirardelli caramel flavored chips. I put them in one of my favorite cookie dough recipes, and voila! They are perfection. Peaches and caramel are really wonderful together–like caramel apples except with peaches instead. On top of that, these are easier than cookies since you just press them into a cookie sheet instead of rolling into balls.

Back in June, I was contacted by Washington State Stone Fruit Growers Commission and asked to make recipes using their fruit. They would send fruit and I would make either food recipes or canning recipes and blog about it. They sent me a twenty-pound box of peaches in the middle of August. I’ve been busy making peach desserts ever since. I’ve come up with some absolutely spectacular recipes with all that prime fruit. I plan on sharing them with you over the next few weeks.

The peaches came in mint condition, and believe me, we’ve been enjoying them. The skin on these peaches was so wonderful I’ve been able to make several recipes without first peeling them. What a time savings. Plus, those skins add healthy nutrients. 🙂 I’ve inundated our neighbors, friends and folks at John’s office with all kinds of tasty treats over the past couple of weeks. We have already received all kinds of rave reviews over these recipes, so I hope you’ll give them a try. I can tell you from first hand experience I’ve drooled over every single one.

Peach Caramel Blondies are really are terrific cookies for any occasion. But they’re especially nice for summer and fall parties when fresh peaches are in season.  These are also great for tailgating and potlucks. These blondies (cookies) are not overly difficult to make either. While I served some ala mode with caramel sauce over top, they are totally heavenly just plain. But be warned. These amazing cookies are so drool-worthy you won’t want to stop eating them.

Bake at 350 for about 40-50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. My oven took 55 minutes to bake these fully.

    Made these with some fresh peaches I got from a Farmers Market. They turned out fabulous, even my husband and daughter thought so. I didn’t have caramel chips and I didn’t make the frosting for the top. Instead I used white chocolate chips and put caramel ice cream topping on top. Turned out so moist. I will be making this again. Thank You for sharing. God Bless!

      Hi, Nancy. So glad you enjoyed the blondies. Caramel chips are hard to find sometimes. Kroger calls them salted caramel chips I think. Sometimes we can get a Hershey’s brand certain times of the year. I usually pick up a few packages whenever I see them, because most stores don’t carry them throughout the year. 🙁

    Teresa, your husband was in our office in Colorado Springs yesterday and he dropped off these Peach Caramel Blondies for us to enjoy. Thank you! They are wonderful!! We have a lot of great peaches in Colorado and I will have to give this recipe a try!

      Hi, Tara. So glad you enjoyed them. They’re fairly easy to make too. When fresh peaches are in season I just have to bake goodies. 🙂
