Butterscotch, Walnut and Oat Bars

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 […]

Stay-Fresh Butterscotch Bars

butterscotchbarswithglucose

Last week during my experiments with glucose syrup, I came across this recipe from the famous Heny Sison culinary school in Manilla. 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. Saturday I baked a modified half batch of the bars and […]

This is a more traditional blondie than the dense and rich ones previously posted. The base is lighter and is a good contrast to the big chunks of pecans which in my opinion, are absolutely necessary. In fact, I wish I’d added butterscotch chips as well because the sweet chips would have been good with the slightly salty (recipe uses salted butter) dough.

butterscotch-blondies

After missing an important holiday, National Butterscotch Brownie day, I looked through Cookie Madness and found very few recipes for butterscotch brownies. There were plenty of blondies, but only two really emphasized the butterscotch – the Whole Foods recipe and the one from Cooking Light. So I decided to round up a few new butterscotch brownie recipes and test them side by side.

I decided to commence testing with Jenn’s butterscotch blondie which she posted in […]

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 […]

Almond Butterscotch Bars — A+

butterscotch toffee bars

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, …

Cooking Light’s Butterscotch Blondies

Click here for the recipe. I’ve also posted it below. Overall, these are good for a low fat blondie. They have a rich, brown sugar flavor and a nice texture. I don’t think I prefer these over higher fat butterscotch bars (see Hershey recipe below), but they were good for a low fat bar. Butterscotch […]
