Sshhh! I did something bad! I stole a recipe from councilor Kathy Manning. You may know her from The Wolf Within Series.
She showed up in Scratch the Surface and has been popping up ever since in most of the novels. She is always cooking. Although she can be fancy (like the time she took white chocolate drizzled strawberries steeped in Grand Marnier to the beach), she's best known for her awesome butterscotch squares.
She only makes them for the ones she really loves and if she knew I was sharing this recipe with you, I would be in so much trouble!
But I think if she knew you guys, she'd bake this for you. Since she doesn't you'll have to bake them for yourselves, and wait til you taste them! So here you go!
Kathy manning's Butterscotch squares:
- 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter
- 1 cup dark brown sugar, packed
- 1 large egg
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup butterscotch chips
Preheat oven to 350F. Line 8-by-8-inch pan with aluminum foil or parchment paper. Spray with cooking spray; set aside.
Place butter in a medium sauce pan and heat over medium-low to medium heat. Stir frequently to prevent burning. When brown specks appear, remove the pan from the burner, continuing to whisk for another 30 seconds. Pour butter into large mixing bowl and allow it to cool for a few minutes.
Add brown sugar to the butter. Whisk to combine. Whisk in egg and vanilla. Add flour, salt, and stir until just combined. Fold in butterscotch chips. Pour batter into prepared pan.
Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until bars are set. Allow bars to cool for at least 2 hours. Store bars in an airtight container at room temperature or in the refrigerator for up to 1 week. They can be frozen for up to 3 months.
YUMMY! YUMMY! YUMMY!
I hope you guys liked it!
