Gunther Central Perk’s Blondies


NO. They’re not directly mentioned or referenced in the show. BUT! As soon as I tasted one, I just knew this would be something in the display stand at Central Perk.

Maybe one if the treats Joey gave away to a pretty customer.

Maybe an item Rachel sneezed on for a rude customer.

I. Don’t. Know.

But I do know, that I would love to be perched on the orange couch, feet thrown up on the coffee table and snacking on one of these bars surrounded by my friends.

They are also ridiculously easy to make! And you probably have all the ingredients without making a trip to the store!

Such a win, this recipe.

You’re going to mix the butter and brown sugar (sinful. I could just eat that concoction alone.), then add the eggs and vanilla, then the flour and salt. Stupid easy.

Dump it in your greased pan. (Smear your butter stick over your baking dish before you throw it in the bowl to melt. Easy.)

Sprinkle the cinnamon sugar mixture over top. BAKE.

SOOOOOO GOOD. My husband says these trump brownies. Literally, guys, brownies have been his vice as long as I’ve known him. These. Trump. Brownies.

Not the best photos you’ve ever seen on a blog, but I’m telling you, these are sooo gooooood!

Here’s what you need and how to make them… it now!


  • 1 cup butter, melted
  • 2 cups brown sugar
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 2 cups flour
  • Pinch of salt
  • 4 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
    1. Preheat oven to 350. Grease your baking dish
      In a medium bowl, mix melted butter and brown sugar together
      Add beaten eggs and vanilla, stir until combined
      Stir in flour and salt until combined
      Dump mixture into baking dish
      Mix cinnamon and sugar together and then spread evenly over mixture in baking dish
      Bake for 25 minutes
      Let cool before cutting because these are gooey and need to set up a bit. (Test center with toothpick. Bake for longer time if it doesn’t come out clean)
  • They’re very, very, veryyyyy good warm, though. So maybe cheat a little and snag one before they’re completely cooled.

    If you make these, tag me in your photos on Instagram! @shorthairsandlongnaps

    Have a great day and I hope you love these blondies as much as we do!
