Butterscotch Blondies www.tasteandseegodsgoodness.blogspot.com

These bars are a sweet, buttery alternative to brownies!

Here’s the recipe:

2/3 cup butter (this is 10 TBSP plus half another TBSP), melted

2 cups brown sugar

2 eggs

1 TBSP vanilla

2 cups flour (I use half white, half white wheat)

1 teas baking powder

3/4 teas salt

1/4 teas baking soda

1 cup butterscotch chips

1 cup chopped nuts, optional

In a mixing bowl, combine the butter and brown sugar. Add the eggs and vanilla, mix well.

In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, salt and baking soda. Slowly add to the sugar mixture until well combined.

Stir in the butterscotch chips and nuts. I always do this by hand instead of with the mixer.

Pat the mixture into a greased 9x13 pan. I use a piece of wax paper to do this so my hands don't get sticky. You can use your hands or the back of a spoon, but grease them up first!

Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes until golden brown. Cool and cut into bars.
