Butterscotch Blondies

Courtney is going to have dinner at a friend’s house tonight and asked me to make a treat for her to take that wasn’t chocolate because several of those friends don’t like chocolate (what?) so I made these.  I baked them in my top oven (I have one of those double ovens) and they were supposed to bake for 30 – 35 minutes but at 20 minutes, they were really brown but really gooey in the middle so I’m not sure if the temperature was too high or if it was because they were in the top oven or what but if you make them, I would say check them at the 20 minute mark and see how they’re looking.  By the way they still tasted really good even as gooey as they were and I know that because Bob ate about 3 right after I cut them up!  (I can’t remember where this recipe came from, sorry!)

3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) butter, softened

3/4 cup packed brown sugar

1/2 cup sugar

2 eggs

2 cups flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 2/3 cups (10 oz package) butterscotch chips

1 cup nuts

Heat oven to 350 (or maybe lower if your oven runs hot).  Lightly grease 9 x 13″ pan (go easy on the Pam, I sprayed mine too much and the bottoms were greasy).  Beat butter and sugars until creamy.  Add eggs and beat well.  Stir flour, baking soda and salt together and then gradually add to butter mixture, blending well.  Stir in chips and nuts.  Spread in pan.  Bake 20 – 30 minutes or until top is golden brown and middle is set.
