Salted Butterscotch Blondies

Salted Butterscotch Blondies

We have new neighbors next door and I’ve been meaning to make them some treats to welcome them to the neighborhood and so yesterday I found this yummy looking recipe and threw them together. They were awesome! It’s a weird quarantine/social distancing time and I wasn’t sure if people would be comfortable accepting baked goods from someone they don’t know but they seemed fine with it.

2 sticks plus 2 tablespoons butter, divided

1 3/4 cups brown sugar, divided

1/3 cup heavy cream

1 tablespoon vanilla, divided

2 eggs

2 1/2 cups flour

1/4 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon salt

flaky sea salt for topping

1 Preheat oven to 350. Spray 9 x 13″ pan with cooking spray.

2 Combine 2 tablespoons butter, 1/4 cup brown sugar, and heavy cream in small saucepan and bring to a simmer over medium heat, stirring occasionally. Continue to cook, stirring frequently, until slightly thickened, about 3 – 4 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in 1 teaspoon vanilla.

3 In a larger saucepan, melt 2 sticks butter then let cool slightly. Stir in 1 1/2 cups brown sugar, eggs, and 2 teaspoons vanilla. Stir in flour, baking soda, and salt.

4 Spread batter in prepared pan and pour sauce over top. Gently swirl sauce into batter with a knife. Bake until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, 30 – 35 minutes. Sprinkle with flaky sea salt and let cool completely before cutting.
