Butterscotch Bars

I found this recipe in an old Cooking Light magazine, and it’s one of Justin’s favorites. All of the ingredients are usually just sitting in my kitchen, except for the butterscotch morsels, which last a long time anyway since you only need 1/2 cup of them. It’s an easy, non-chocolate dessert for you strange people out there who don’t like chocolate. Heck, I’ll even eat a few of these. Or most of them. Whatever.

Butterscotch Bars

  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup butter or stick margarine, softened
  • 2 large egg whites
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Cooking spray
  • 1/2 cup butterscotch morsels

Preheat oven to 350.

Beat sugars and butter at medium speed of a mixer until well-blended. Add egg whites and vanilla; beat well. Combine flour, baking powder, and salt in a separate bowl; stir well with a whisk. Add flour mixture to sugar mixture; beat at low speed just until blended.

Spread batter evenly into an 8-inch square baking pan coated with cooking spray; sprinkle evenly with morsels. Bake for 25 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pan on a wire rack.

Makes 16 bars.

We saw a little bit of snow day before yesterday morning and thought it was going to stick, but it is too warm by now. We are anxiously awaiting the afternoons to warm up and the grass to turn green so we can start spending more time outdoors. love you, dad and mom
