Lauren Chattman, cookbook author and baking guru, was inspired by the festive Hot Buttered Rum when she developed this blondie recipe. It's perfect for holiday cookie trays and cookie swaps.
Preheat oven to 350°F. Line 13x9-inch baking pan with foil, with ends of foil extending over sides of pan. Spray foil with no stick cooking spray. Mix flour, baking powder, salt and nutmeg in medium bowl. Set aside.
Mix butter and brown sugar in large bowl until well blended. Add eggs, rum flavor and vanilla; mix well. Add flour mixture; mix just until moistened. Stir in walnuts. Spread in prepared pan.
Bake 30 to 35 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out almost clean. Cool in pan on wire rack. Use foil handles to remove dessert from pan. Place on cutting board and cut into bars.
Store blondies in airtight container at room temperature up to 3 days.
