These butterscotch brownies are super simple to make, no electric mixer required.
One reviewer mentioned that the brownies were "gooey" in the center. They are not cake-like, so they will be very moist and chewy as they cool.
- 5 tablespoons shortening or butter, melted, cooled
- 3/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 egg, lightly beaten
- 3/4 cup all-purpose flour, about 3 1/2 ounces
- 14 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 cup chopped nuts
- 1 cup chocolate or butterscotch chips, or 1/2 cup each flavor
Combine the melted butter or shortening with the brown sugar, vanilla and egg; stir well. Stir in remaining ingredients. Batter will be thick.
Spread in greased and floured 8-inch square pan. Bake at 350° for 20 to 25 minutes. Don't overbake.
Cut butterscotch brownies while warm.
