Butterscotch blondies

We like this treat with a combination of chocolate and butterscotch chips, but you can make it with just one kind if you prefer.

1-1/2 cups (375 mL) all purpose flour
1-1/2 tsp. (7 mL) baking powder
1/4 tsp. (1 mL) salt
1-1/4 cups (300 mL) brown sugar
1/2 cup (125 mL) butter, softened
2 eggs
1 tsp. (5 mL) vanilla
1-1/3 cups (325 mL) semisweet chocolate or butterscotch chips (or half and half)

  1. Preheat the oven to 350° F (180° C). Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and grease the paper lightly.
  2. In a small bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder and salt. In a large bowl, with an electric mixer, beat together the brown sugar and butter just until combined. Add the eggs and vanilla and continue beating for another minute or two, until creamy. Add the flour in two or three portions, beating just until combined after each addition. Finally, stir in the chocolate or butterscotch chips.
  3. Spread batter in the prepared pan and bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until lightly browned on top and a toothpick poked into the middle comes out clean.
Makes about 24 blondies.
