Editor's Note: The classic brownie recipe gets a gluten-free twist with these Blonde Brownies! This easy dessert recipe uses only seven ingredients and won't take long to prepare; from start to finish, it will likely only take you fewer than 45 minutes to make this dessert. Although you can certainly make these brownies in advance of your potluck, there is nothing quite like serving the brownies when they are still warm from the oven! This gluten-free recipe is sure to be a hit with all of your family and friends, too. 

This chewy blonde brownie is delicious by itself, but try adding a dollop of whipped cream topped with chopped nuts for a special treat.

Ice creams vary a lot from brand to brand. Most vanilla ice creams are gluten-free. Many flavored ice creams, however, are not. Be sure and read the label or call the manufacturer to be sure.
