Butterscotch Brownies


Grandma Bethie's Butterscotch Brownies
These butterscotch brownies are one of the cookies that I remember baking, and enjoying as a young girl This is a perfect recipe for teaching a child how to bake. What fun it is to pack a cup full of brown sugar! I sound like a book from the 1960s, which is when I was learning to cook, and read. See Lisa crack an egg. Crack Lisa, crack. Hey, that sounded better than my initial thought of Dick likes cookies. Eat Dick, eat.  Okay, enough Dick. It's recipe time!


 My mom's recipe is torn, and tattered from heavy use. 



My daughter, BG, copied it onto a recipe card when she was a child. 
(Thanks to Lori for noticing that BG copied the butter amount incorrectly.
It is 1/4 cup butter NOT 1/2 cup.)
These are simple, yet delicious.

  3. These look perfect! I am going to write this down. My daughter makes a white chocolate brownie, as she does not like chocolate. (What?.. I know!) so I know she will love these! Thanks so much!
    Blessings,

  4. I am in need of some new and easy desserts and this one sounds perfect! I loved butterscotch anything as a kid but as an adult I really haven't had anything made with it...well except for the Butternips Liquer:) Thanks for sharing!

  5. My favorite thing about this recipe are the two recipe cards. I love that you have your mom's handwriting and your daughter's - that's a great heirloom.

    Thanks for joining us for Feed Me Friday this week. I'm excited to read more from you! Have a great weekend.

    Best,
    Emily

  13. In your mom's recipe it has 1/4 cup of butter or margarine, but in your daughter's it says 1/2 cup butter or margarine. Which one should it be? That is double the amount of butter! It sounds really good, and I am a fan of butterscotch and brownies. Thanks!

    1. Lori,

      Good catch! It should be 1/4 cup of butter. I have changed it. :)

  20. Oh my gosh, here we go, another recipe from akawest that I have to try. My kids love you (baked goods are their thing), and I have a feeling my treadmill is going to too (because if I keep eating this stuff I'm going to need it). :)

    The recipe looks great, and of course, I'm going to give it a try.

    Love the picture of the older recipe, my grandma's kitchen was filled w/handwritten, tattered recipes, so that just looks like home. :)
