Week 4: Butterscotch Blondies

These are a snowy night treat for my dear boyfriend who LOVES butterscotch chips.  Seriously… loves them.  To put it into perspective, these are so easy to make that I whipped them up while he ran out to get us a movie.  If you’d like to substitute nuts, chocolate chips, or any other fun mix-in, I think you’ll find that just about anything works in this basic recipe.

 Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1 cup of packed dark brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/8 tsp baking soda
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • pinch of cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour (you can use all AP if you prefer)
  • 1/2 cup butterscotch chips

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Lightly butter and flour an 8″x8″ pan.  Combine the dry ingredients in a bowl and set aside.  Whisk together the melted butter and sugar in a bowl.  Add the egg and vanilla, whisk well.

Add the dry ingredients and mix until thoroughly combined.  Fold in the butterscotch chips or other mix-ins.

Spread the batter into your prepared pan and bake for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.  Cool and cut into squares.

This is a slightly modified version of this recipe:  http://simplyrecipes.com/recipes/blondies-print/

PS: If you like Bruce Willis, Helen Mirren, or any of the other stars, the movie, Red, is really great!  Oh, and bf wanted more butterscotch chips in the next batch, so adjust according to your own cookie monster.
