White Chocolate, Lemon, and Poppy Seeds!

Such a wonderful combination! The white chocolate adds a decadent, comforting richness, while still letting the lemon poppy seed combo shine as it should.

These lemon poppy seed white chocolate blondies are soft, dense, and chewy. Yum! And they’re rather pretty, aren’t they?

You can find lemon curd at many grocery stores near the jams and preserves. It is a tangy, creamy lemon spread. And you can definitely make from scratch! I use homemade lemon curd, which actually happened to be overcooked and not quite ideal in this particular instance and photo. Just pretend it looks like this lemon curd. Thanks. 😉

The blondies still turned out great though. And don’t worry, the next time I made homemade lemon curd it turned out perfectly!

Anyway, take a look at this creamy delight. White chocolate chips and butter all melted together, looking and smelling divine.

All of this white chocolate is making my mouth water. By the way, the best ever white chocolate chips, in my opinion, are Guittard Choc-Au-Lait. They are way better tasting than any other brand that I have tried. And no, I don’t work for them, I just like eating their delicious chocolate chips. It all started when my husband won a 10-pound bar of Guittard chocolate many years ago…

Anyway, back to the recipe at hand… You end up with a nice, thick batter. Pour and spread it into your prepared lined pan and bake away! Try to wait patiently while they cool, then cut them into small squares. Dust the bars with a little powdered sugar and they are ready to serve. These blondies taste great warmed, at room temperature, or chilled.
