@dinoleash: This is a really good recipe for blondies. I think that you will like it. You will need:
½ cup shortening, 1 Tbsp. milk, 1 cup brown sugar, 1 egg (beaten), 1 cup all-purpose flour, ½ tsp. baking powder, 1/8 tsp. salt, 1 tsp. vanilla extract, and ½ cup chopped nuts.
Preheat your oven to 350. Grease and flour an 8 x 8 in. pan. Combine the shortening and milk in a large saucepan. Place over low heat until the shortening melts. Remove from heat and add the brown sugar and egg. Stir until well blended.
Combine the baking powder, flour, and salt and then stir into the sugar mixture. Stir in the vanilla and the nuts. Spread evenly over the prepared pan.
Bake for 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Cool and cut into squares.
