I’ve been craving cookies with lots of oats and nuts lately — specifically, Monster Cookies. However, I already have so many Monster recipes that I decided to try something a little different. Unlike my favorite Monsters (that sounds like a sixties tv show, doesn’t it?), these cookies do not have peanut butter and are baked [...]

It’s a basic butterscotch bar made with brown sugar, butter, etc., but with the addition of glucose syrup, designed to keep the bars moist and fresh.

Happy Belated Butterscotch Brownie Day! And Happy Mother’s Day as well, but I missed National Butterscotch Day and need to touch on that first because one thing yesterday’s holiday brought to my attention was that of the nine recipes I have categorized under “Blondies”, only a couple have a particular emphasis on butterscotch. I need to make more [...]

This one’s from the Blue Diamond nut company. It’s a brown sugar flavored shortbread topped with sliced almonds and butterscotch chips. The shortbread base is thin but very sturdy and makes a good foundation for the mixture of almonds and butterscotch chips. Did you know Hershey makes butterscotch chips? I didn’t, …
