Butterscotch Squares

on April 13, 2016

These bars are, again, from the tiny book we found at my sister’s house last January. It’s amazing that all of the recipes I’ve made from that cute little book have been just great. All of the recipes in that book came from ladies who probably needed a lot of recipes for church functions, family gatherings, and afternoon coffee. These recipes have all been perfect for making when you’re having people over. This one has turned out to be one of my husband’s favorites, and he likes them best with afternoon coffee. I don’t blame him. These Butterscotch Squares are easy to make, and they’re very good.


These bars are absolutely delicious!

Here is the recipe as I made it:

Butterscotch Squares

Bring to a boil:

1/2 cup butter

2 cups brown sugar

Mix in:

2 eggs

1 1/2 cups flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

1 teaspoon vanilla

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 cup nuts, chopped or 1 cup dates, chopped (I happened to have 1/2 cup of dates left from something else, so I added them plus 1/2 cup of walnuts)

I put the batter in a 9″ x 12″ pan.

Bake at 325 degrees for 30-40 minutes.


Again, these bars are so simple to make.


Before and after baking – yum.


Another treat just right with afternoon coffee.


These bars are chewy and delicious – butterscotch, but with a bit of a caramel flavor.


Bake a batch of these bars and call your friends or family to come on over for the afternoon. Then brew up a big pot of coffee to have with the bars, and make sure to keep at least one for yourself. I had to hide mine in the freezer – I wasn’t kidding when I said that these are my husband’s favorite! That might be difficult. Your guests will love this treat and they’ll love you for inviting them!
