Try a different take on blondies using pistachios, rose and white chocolate. Scatter with dried rose petals for a pretty finish, if you like

  • Freezable
  • Vegetarian
Nutrition: Per blondie


  • 60g pistachios
  • 150g white chocolate , chopped
  • 100g unsalted butter , cubed, plus extra for the tin
  • 200g light brown soft sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • ½-1 tbsp rosewater
  • 85g plain flour
  • 100g white chocolate chips
  • dried rose petals , to decorate (optional)


  • STEP 1

    Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4 and butter and line a 20 x 20cm baking tin. Tip the pistachios into a pan and toast over a medium heat for 3-4 mins until aromatic, tossing occasionally so they don’t burn. Set aside.

  • STEP 2

    Melt the chopped white chocolate and butter together, either in a bowl set over a pan of simmering water or in the microwave in short bursts. Leave to cool slightly, then beat in the brown sugar with a wooden spoon. Add the eggs, mixing well after each addition, then stir in the rosewater and ¼ tsp salt. Sieve in the flour and gently fold together.

  • STEP 3

    Roughly chop the cooled pistachios, then add them to the blondie mix and fold in the white chocolate chips. Pour the mixture into the lined baking tin.

  • STEP 4

    Bake for 35-40 mins until set and golden brown, then leave to cool completely before slicing. To serve, scatter with dried rose petals, if you like.
