Oreo Birthday Cake Blondies

I'm really not a baker.  Over the years it seems my sweet tooth has become a savory tooth, so I don't really make a lot of sweet treats.  Flipping through my Google Reader I found this recipe and just had to go for it when we had company one Saturday night.  So glad I did.  I personally could only eat one, but there were none left come Sunday at noon.

Oreo Birthday Cake Blondies
from I Wash, You Dry

8 tbsp butter, room temperature
1 cup brown sugar
1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup self-rising flour
8 Birthday Cake Oreos, roughly chopped
1/4 cup sprinkles

Preheat oven to 350F.  Line an 8x8" baking dish with parchment or foil.  In a large bowl with a hand mixer, cream together butter and sugar until light a fluffy (you could also use a stand mixer).  Add egg and vanilla and beat until incorporated.  Add flour 1/2 cup at a time, scraping the sides of the bowl as you go.  Fold in Oreos and sprinkles.  Transfer to the baking dish.  Bake 20-25 minutes, until the center is set and a toothpick comes out clean.  Let cool, serve, and stand back from the mob that's gathered.

This would be a great alternative to birthday cake for someone who hates cake (HINT!)  And definitely needs a big glass of milk on the side!
