Aloha Blondie

Aloha Blondie. Hello cakey cookie pie.

Aloha Blondie

This recipe is a spin-off from my Brown Sugar Blondie…kinda like Rhoda from Mary Tyler Moore.

I loved Rhoda. She wore the best gypsy-chic, 70’s scarves wrapped around her head. Plus she was a blunt, funny, self-aware New Yorker who went to art school.

In the world of Marys and Rhodas I am totally a Rhoda. Fine with me. Rhoda rocked. I even had a serious, vintage scarf as a head wrap, fashion phase when I was attending art school (and beyond).

Aloha Blondie has the deep, almost rummy, sweetness of  dark brown sugar, the crackle of raw pecans and the occasional, soft, honey-ish pop from golden raisins. Shredded coconut brings in a little tropical vibe and adds texture. Raw cacao nibs mix a subtle, dark chocolate taste into the background.

Aloha Blondie has a lot going on but it works together really well. Kinda like Rhoda.

My husband can’t hear the name of this dessert without referencing good ole Jeff Spicoli. I suppose Spicoli, in the end, had more to him than history may have suspected.

Aloha Mr. Hand.
