What you'll need:
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 cup of tightly packed dark brown sugar
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 teaspoon of vanilla
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/8 teaspoon of baking soda
pinch of salt
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup butterscotch chips (I also threw in a handful of chocolate chips)
1. Preheat oven to 350°. Lightly butter and flour an 8x8 pan. Whisk together the melted butter and sugar in a bowl.
2. Add the egg and vanilla extract. Whisk together.
3. Add the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Mix it all together. Add the butterscotch chips and any other items you may want to add (chocolate chips, walnuts, etc.)
4. Pour into the pan and spread evenly. Bake for 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Allow to cool and cut into squares.
Makes about 8 blondies
