Blondies:
1 cup butter, melted
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
3 eggs
2 tsp vanilla
2¼ cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
3/4 tsp salt

Filling:
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup vanilla chips

Preheat oven to 350°. Spray 13″x9″ baking pan with non-stick spray. In large bowl, stirring by hand, mix melted butter, sugar, and brown sugar. Mix in eggs one at a time, and stir in vanilla. Add flour, baking powder, and salt; mix just until combined. In small bowl, stir together sugar, brown sugar, and cinnamon for the filling. Spread half the batter (about 2 cups) in prepared pan. Sprinkle cinnamon sugar filling over batter. Sprinkle vanilla chips over cinnamon sugar, press down gently. Drop remaining batter by scoopfuls over the top and gently spread (I used my fingers sprayed with nonstick spray, it takes a minute with patience but it works). Bake 30-32 minutes, until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool completely before frosting.

Buttercream Frosting:
1/2 cup butter, softened
2 cups powdered sugar
1/4 tsp vanilla
2-3 Tbl milk

Whip butter with electric mixer until light in color. Add powdered sugar, vanilla, and 2 Tbl milk. Whip. Add more milk if needed for desired frosting consistency. Spread over completely cool blondies.
