Last weekend, my 7-year-old, Cal, and I decided that we’d do our best to put together packages of sweets for our neighborhood friends. But what to make?

I subscribe to updates from several cooking and baking blogs, and when a recipe for pistachio blondies from the Sweet Paul blog popped up in my inbox, both Cal and I got excited.

We love pistachios. He eats them by the handful as an after-school snack, and I love to put them on yogurt, along with fruit, for a little salty-sweet kick at breakfast. We had to give the blondie recipe a try.

The original recipe calls for white chocolate and lemon, but I wanted to go in a different direction. We left out the lemon, and swapped butterscotch for the white chocolate. Our modifications worked beautifully.

These bars are rich and delicious, and their lovely golden color, studded with green pistachios, make them a great-looking gift to boot. Cal thought they could use some red M&Ms on top. I’ll leave that up to you.
