A super simple blondie with hints of floral cardamom, sweet apricots, and crunchy pecans. Saffron Salt is the true star though, adding a bright note of vanilla and balancing the sweetness with a touch of salt.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Melt butter with Saffron Salt and cardamom in a small saucepot over medium-low heat. Pour into a medium bowl and stir in brown sugar. Stir in egg until thoroughly incorporated (if butter and sugar mixture is hot, let cool for about 5 min. before stirring in the egg so it doesn't curdle). Fold in flour, apricots, and pecans. The mixture will be very thick. Spoon the batter into an 8-inch square pan lined with parchment paper. Spread mixture evenly and sprinkle generously with Saffron Salt. Bake for 25 to 30 min., or until a toothpick inserted into the middle of the blondies comes out clean. Let cool completely in the pan before cutting and serving.

"I just wanted to say that I love your spices. I recently ordered and I recieved a free sample of your Barnegat Bay Butcher's Rub. After using this for my chicken, I had to go and order some. It made my chicken mouthwatering! Thank you again, it will be a staple in my spice cupboard."
