White Chocolate Blondies

I know I've neglected my blog.  I'm very sorry.  If I offer you White Chocolate Blondies will you please, please forgive me?  In my opinion, white chocolate can make up for almost anything...

White Chocolate Blondie Bites
From the February 2009 issue of Vegetarian Times

1 1/2 cups white chocolate chips
1/2 cup butter, cut into pieces
1/4 cup sugar
2 large eggs, beaten
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup tightly packed shredded coconut (sweetened or not)
1/4 cup slivered almonds

Preheat the oven to 350F.  Coat 11x7 inch baking pan with cooking spray.  Line the bottom of the pan with parchment paper or foil and spray again.

In a double boiler, combine white chocolate, butter and sugar.  Cook over low heat until melted and smooth.  Remove from heat and cool 5 minutes.  Then, stir in the eggs, vanilla and flour.  Lastly, add in the coconut.

Pour batter into prepared baking pan.  Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, until top is golden and a toothpick inserted into the centre comes out clean.  Cool 15 minutes, then remove from pan and let cool completely.  Cut into squares and serve!
