I was stumped recently when I was trying to come up with a new recipe for a dessert!! Just for the heck of it, a few weeks ago, I asked my dad. He said, "how about butterscotch?" I immediately thought of blondies, even though I have never made them😉. Ever since I decided to make the blondies, I have been giving my dad updates on how the recipe was progressing whether he wanted to hear it or not. LOL. I did learn one very important thing that I didn't know about my dad - he's a big fan of butterscotch!! I already knew he liked my "tea!"
1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
1 cup light brown sugar, lightly packed
1 large egg
1/8 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons vanilla extract1 cup white flour
1/3 cup butterscotch chips
1/3 cup milk chocolate chips
1/3 cup pecans, chopped
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a 8x8 inch square pan with parchment paper and set aside. In a medium bowl, put the butter and light brown sugar and mix well with a large spoon until smooth. Next, add the egg, salt and vanilla extract and combine well. Add the flour and stir vigorously for 50 strokes (the batter should be starting to pull away from the bowl). Gently "fold," in the butterscotch chips, milk chocolate chips, pecans and stir to combine. Pour into prepared pan and spread the batter evenly with a knife and bake for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the middle of the blondies comes out clean. Remove from oven and let cool slightly. Store covered at room temperature.
