These familiar bar cookies are made merrier with the spice of candied ginger, the sweetness of dried pear, and the crunch of pistachios.

    Delicious and easy. I substituted dried cranberries for the pears and they looked very pretty and festive.

    These are delicious but also nice left as a cake and not cut into wedges as they start crumbling.Also you don't need as much slat as the recipe suggests!

    I made a vegan version of these blondies, and they turned out absolutely PERFECT!!! Extremely rich, flavorful, luscious, chewy - everything a blondie should be.

    Trader Joe's is great for these ingredients.

    Where are you in New England? Do you have a National Grocery Store like Safeway? There should be a nutrition section where you could buy in bulk, ie the dried pears and candied ginger. The pistachios, I'd just buy and shell myself. You could also substitute dried apples, fresh peeled and grated ginger for candied, and another nut, if you can't find in a health food store, food co-op or nutrition section of a National grocery store...grew up in St. Johnsbury, VT!
