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.

Well, they did turn out great and were really yummy!!!
