So here is another sweet recipe from scratch. I found this one on the Nestle website about 2 years ago and adapted it just a little for our family. It is another favorite for all ages – and it is so very easy to prepare. It is one of those “get me fork and leave me with the pan” recipes. Even though they make a lot of brownies, they never last long in my house.
Here is what you will need:
2 ½ cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
1 cup (2 sticks) of butter softened
1 ¾ cups packed brown sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
2 large eggs
1, 11oz package of butterscotch flavored chips
First, preheat your oven to 350 and lightly spray a 13 x 9 inch pan with non-stick cooking spray. Then in a medium bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and salt. In a separate, larger bowl beat the butter, brown sugar, and vanilla extract until combined. Beat in the eggs until you have a nice creamy mixture. While you’re still mixing, slowly add in the flour mixture until it is all combined. Your batter will be kind of thick but this is normal. Stir in 1 cup of butterscotch chips and then spread it into a 13 x 9 inch baking pan. Take the remaining butterscotch chips and sprinkle them on top. Bake it for 30-40 minutes or until it passes the “toothpick test” (a wooden toothpick comes out clean when inserted into the middle of the brownies).
Make sure you don’t overcook them – my oven cooks very quickly and I set the timer for 25 minutes so I can watch them because they never cook longer than 30 minutes. They will be golden brown when you pull them out. Let them sit and cool for about 45 minutes before you cut them – this will allow them to firm up a bit. They will still be warm though and the chewy goodness will be hard to resist!
