Butterscotch Blondies


Y'all. These are the bomb.com. I've tried other blondie recipes before that were just ok, but the flavor didn't wow me, or they were too dry. These are just the right texture, striking the balance between chewy and cakey, not too gooey and not too dry. Plus they are super easy, and you probably already have most of the ingredients in your pantry/fridge! So just make them ok?

You will need:
3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) butter, softened
3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 eggs
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 2/3 cups (10 oz. package) butterscotch chips
1 cup chopped nuts (optional)



Heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease 13x9x2 inch baking pan. You can use shortening or butter. I used butter because more butter=better. 


Beat butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar in large bowl until creamy. Add eggs, beat well. 


Stir together flour, baking soda, and salt. 


Gradually add to butter mixture, blending well. Stir in butterscotch chips and nuts. 



Look at that goodness. YUM. 
At this point I may have eaten a spoon full of the dough. But I'll never tell. 

Spread into prepared pan. It's more like cookie dough than brownie batter, it's very thick and I ended up using my hands to press it into the pan. 


Bake  for 30 to 35 minutes or until top is golden brown and center is set. Cool completely in pan on wire rack. 


Cut into bars. It makes about 36 bars according to the recipe. Or like 10. Depends on how you cut them...


Eat warm with a big ol' glass of milk or a strong cup of coffee. Try not to eat the whole pan in one sitting. That's my serving suggestion anyway. 


Enjoy! 

Ingredients: 
3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) butter, softened
3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 eggs
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 2/3 cups (10 oz. package) butterscotch chips
1 cup chopped nuts (optional)

Directions:
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease 13x9x2 inch baking pan. Beat butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar in large bowl until creamy. Add eggs; beat well. Stir together flour, baking soda, and salt; gradually add to butter mixture, blending well. Stir in butterscotch chips and nuts, if desired. Spread into prepared pan.

Bake for 30 to 35 minutes or until top is golden brown and center is set. Cool completely in pan on wire rack. Cut into bars.

Tips: 
  • I ran out of butterscotch chips and substituted the remaining amount needed with peanut butter chips. This was a good choice. So if you want to do that intentionally just know that it's delicious! 
  • The recipe says to bake for 30-35 minutes, but in my oven they were done in a little under 30 minutes. I think my oven may get a little hot OR it could have been because I used a glass pan. In any case you may want to start your timer conservatively, like at 20-25 minutes  and check with a toothpick in the center until it comes out clean. Don't overbake these, you don't want to dry them out! 
  • Make sure you really grease the pan well, don't be stingy with the butter. This way they should come out of the pan easily. Remember, more butter is better. 
  • Also, while you do want them to cool before cutting and taking them out of the pan, try not to let them sit for too long or they might stick.
