In the Vintage Kitchen: Butterscotch Brownies


These have become my go-to bar cookie for all cookie situations. They mix up so quickly and are frighteningly good. I've been serving them, still warm, to our Wednesday night Bible study group, and I have no intention of stopping.


I generally double this recipe, add a bag of butterscotch chips, and bake in a 13x9 pan for eight extra minutes.

Amazing to see a recipe in which you can use butter, margarine, shortening or oil!! How versatile!

I thought that page looked fimilar so I grabbed my copy of Betty Crocker's Cooky Book which used to be my Grandma's. I checked the index for Butterscoth Brownies & sure enough same exact page you've got there.

I also use the sugar cookie recipe from this book & the spritz cookies at Christmas time.

I'm going to go bake some now!

Thanks for the reminder.

A picture is worth a thousand bites..
I couldn't resist.
I whipped up a panful for tonight's dessert using all Prairie Gold flour and chocolate chips. Butter really does lend the most superior flavor.
The aroma throughout the house will set us all to sweet slumber.

Such inspiration!

Hi Anna,

I'm not sure what you mean by "butterscotch chips". Is this something you make or a butterscotch lolly/candy?

Thanks.

I had to make these today--everyone I shared with loved them.
These will be a new house favorite.
Thanks for the recipe!

Anna said...

Rose, butterscotch chips are shelved with the chocolate chips at the grocery store. They are the same size and shape, but made from butterscotch candy.

I may have to branch out from my regular brownies (which are dessert bliss as far as I am concerned) and try these. I had never used butterscotch chips until last year when I accidentally bought some and added them to my peanut butter cookies. Now my husband doesn't want anything to do with peanut butter cookies that don't have the butterscotch chips and neither do I. I am glad to find another recipe using the little darlings.

Mmmmmmm. Thank you!

Rose said...

Thanks for you reply Anna. We don't have such a product here in Australia but I am sure I can substitute chopped butterscotch lolly/candy. I'll let you know the result.

Cheers!

These sound just wonderful!

A question about the butterscotch chips: do they have an artificial aftertaste to anyone else? Maybe I am buying the wrong kind? I just wondered because I want to try this recipe! :)Maybe I will just use chocolate chips,can't really go wrong with those!

Yummy! I made some tonight!

Lydia Jo said...

I made these bars for friends. Big hit!

ngtrI have always loved these! I just wish chocolate homemade ones would turn out as well! I have never used the butterscotch chips though!
