Brown Butter Butterscotch Blondies

makes about 16 bars

  • 1/2 c. unsalted butter
  • 1/2 lb. brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1-1/4 c. flour
  • 1-1/4 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 c. butterscotch chips
1) Preheat oven to 350 F and line 9x9 pan with parchment paper or coat generously with nonstick cooking spray. 

2) Melt butter in small saucepan, stirring continuously, until browned. The butter will start off bubbly and loud, then quiet down. Watch closely as it turns to an amber color and starts smelling like caramel; immediately remove from heat and pour into mixing bowl. Allow to cool about 10 minutes. 

2) Add sugar, eggs and vanilla, beating well until completely combined. Add dry ingredients and mix well. Stir in butterscotch chips. Spread mixture into prepared pan and bake 30-35 minutes. Allow to cool and cut into squares.
