[Sca-cooks] OT - Blondie recipe

Ok, so I tried to make a pan of blondies using a recipe straight out  
of the Better Homes cookbook and now I'm rather vexed.  While the  
results looked perfect and smelled wonderful, when they were cut they  
turned out to be complete goo beneath a crunchy top (though they  
still taste good).  I assume something is amiss in the proportions of  
fats to flour to eggs, but I'll be darned if I know where to begin  
fixing the recipe.  This is the very first time a Better Homes recipe  
has turned out anything other than stereotypical for me.  It's a bit  
like an old friend has let me down.

Anyways, the recipe calls for 2 cups flour, 2 tsp baking powder, 1/2  
cup butter, 2 cups brown sugar, 2 eggs, 1 tsp vanilla, 1/4 tsp salt.

Any thoughts?  Better recipes?
