Note: I love the blonde brownie from Applebee's when it is fresh and warm. The last two times I have gone to Applebee's the brownie wasn't fresh so I got frustrated and decided to find a recipe and make it for myself. Yummy and much cheaper too!!
Copycat Applebee's Blonde Brownie
2 cups Flour
1 teaspoons Baking Powder
3 /4 teaspoon Salt
1/4 teaspoon Baking Soda
1 1/4 sticks unsalted Butter (10 Tablespoons)

In mixing bowl, place melted butter and add sugar, mixing well. Add eggs and vanilla, mixing well. Add flour slowly, blending. Batter will be slightly thick. Spread in pan. Sprinkle chocolate chips and pecans over all. Bake for 25 − 30 minutes
