Strawberry Goat Cheese Blondies

 

Blondies are one of my favorite desserts, and I love making them for parties.  I usually stick with my classic recipe, but this weekend I’m making them for a pool party so I wanted to mix it up and add a little summer to them.  I’ve also been on a bit of a goat cheese kick lately so I knew I wanted to sneak it into this recipe.

I came up with a cheesecake recipe in which I replaced some of the cream cheese with goat cheese, and then I added strawberry jam to it.  Next I made my blondie batter and reduced the sugar in it just a bit to make sure that the final product wasn’t too sweet.  Then I swirled both batters together and let them get to know each other in the oven ;)  The final result was outrageous!

The best way I can describe these is it’s like strawberry cheesecake and blondies hooked up, and it is a beautiful thing!  The goat cheese adds this wonderful little punch to them without being over powering.  The slight tartness blends perfectly with the sweetness of the strawberry jam.  If you’ve never used goat cheese in a dessert this is a great place to start.  It’s the one thing that will make you go hmm what is that, and will definitely leave you wanting more.  Hope everyone has a fabulous weekend!

    I too am on a goat cheese trend. I spread it on Multigrain Food Should Taste Good Chips to make my Goat Cheese Chip Sandwiches. Easy snack or appetizer.
    Use any chip, but definitely use the goat cheese.
