Who doesn't love a good blondie? My husband has actually never had them before. Being the baker that I am, I had to remedy that situation, and decided to make a quick batch of these delicious butterscotch blondies.
Theses simple little squares pack a huge punch of flavor especially due to one ingredient...brown butter. Seriously, brown butter makes just about anything 100 times tastier.
Afterall, how amazing do these chewy cookie bars look?
You will start off by browning the butter in a small frying pan. To do this, you will place the butter in the pan, and then on medium heat let the butter melt completely. Stirring occaisionally, the butter will start to foam and then turn brown with lits bits of brown pieces in the bottom of the pan. That's how you know it's done! Then, pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Pour the browned butter into a mixing bowl, and then add in your 1 cup firmly packed brown sugar. Mix these two togther until it's rather creamy in texture.
Add in 1 egg and 2 tsp vanilla exract. Mix these altogether for a few minutes before adding in your ½ tsp baking powder. I like to add the baking powder into the batter directly so it can get incorporated evenly.
Finally, add in 1 cup of all-purpose flour to your batter. Mix this until completely combined.
Then, you will add in ½ cup of butterscotch chips. Mix these in with a rubber spatula so they don't break. Then, pour all of this batter into a lightly greased 9x9 baking dish. If you would like a thicker blondie, try using an 8x8 baking dish.
Sprinkle ¼ cup of butterscotch chips onto the top of the batter and then bake for 24-26 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. The edges will start to get golden brown.

- ½ cup unsalted butter
- 1 cup brown sugar firmly packed
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 egg
- ½ tsp baking powder
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- ¾ cup butterscotch chips
Start out by first adding the butter to a small frying pan or sauce pan. Then, on medium heat and stirring occasionally, the butter will start to melt. Then, it will begin to foam. When it just starts to turn brown under the foam, remove it from the heat.
Then, pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Pour the browned butter (see step 1) into a large mixing bowl. Add in the brown sugar and mix until creamy.
Then, add in your egg and vanilla extract. Mix until just combined for about 2 minutes.
Next, you will add the baking powder and mix for 15 seconds before adding in your flour. When you have mixed your flour in, you can then pour in ½ cup of butterscotch chips.
Fold (mix) these in gently with a rubber spatula and then pour the batter into a lightly greased 9x9 baking dish.
Sprinkle the remaining ¼ cup butterscotch chips onto the top of the batter. Then, bake for 24-26 minutes or until the edges are starting to brown and a toothpick comes out clean.
If you like a thicker butterscotch blondie, use an 8x8 baking dish.
