These bar cookies are great if you are in a rush. I can throw these babies together in about 10 minutes and have an instant dessert. The brown sugar gives these bar cookies a butterscotch flavor. This recipe calls for nuts, but you can certainly leave the nuts out if you want to.


2 Cups Packed Brown Sugar

1 Cup Butter

3 Eggs

2 Teaspoons Vanilla

2 Cups Unbleached Flour

1 Teaspoon Baking Powder

¼ Teaspoon Baking Soda

1 ½ Cups Chopped Almonds, Pecans or Cashews

Preheat the oven to 350° F. Line a 13x9x2 inch baking pan with parchment paper and set aside. In a medium saucepan heat and stir the brown sugar and butter over a medium heat until the butter melts and the mixture is smooth. Cool slightly. Stir in the eggs one at a time. Stir in the vanilla. Stir in the flour, baking soda and baking powder. Spread the batter in the parchment lined baking pan. Sprinkle with the nuts. Bake for 25 minutes. Remove from the oven and cool slightly in the pan on a wire rack. Cut into bars while warm. Makes 36 blondies.
