Cookie Dough Brownies

I am slightly ashamed at how far behind I am right now with my posts; I have at least three more posts yet to write up. However, I will rather put this down to my ability to bake more frequently at the moment.

These brownies are sort of half brownie- half blondie.

Recipe from Evil Shenanigans
