When all the talk around blogsphere started about Eating From Your Pantry Challenge, I was a little disappointed that I wouldn’t be able to participate much. My pantry just wasn’t overflowing with food, that happens when you have 3 teenage boys in the house.
Even though I didn’t have an overflowing pantry with food for dinner, I did have several items in my baking cupboard that needed to be used. And, as you well know, I bake… all the time
So, last weekend, I searched around, and found this recipe for Butterscotch Brownies.
I enjoy baking brownies or any pan dessert, they are definately a time saver. These brownies were not only quick but also really good. Doug, my husband, who is not a butterscotch fan, even loved them. And, although they are called a brownie, I would consider them to be more cake or bar cookie texture. This recipe is definately a keeper.
Butterscotch Brownie recipe adapted from Nestle at HoosierHomemade.com.
