This one bowl butterscotch blondie dessert is sure to be a crowd pleaser at your summer potlucks. Bet your guests can't eat just one!
This was a super easy recipe that I whipped out in minutes. I made everything in my stand mixer and did not need to use a separate bowl to mix together the dry ingredients. After my blondies finished baking, I added some extra butterscotch chips on top for a nicer presentation.
The blondies were nice and crispy on the top like a crackly brownie, and the insides were soft and chewy. The butterscotch chips were sweet and a perfect complement to the brown sugar. You can always customize these blondies to your taste - adding chocolate chips, chocolate chunks, M&Ms, chocolate candy bites or whatever your heart desires. Just make sure you save at least one piece for yourself before your family and friends gobble these up.
- ½ cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
- ½ cup granulated sugar
- ½ cup light brown sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- ½ teaspoon baking powder
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 cup butterscotch chips
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Generously grease a 8"x8" baking pan and set aside (I used a silicone pan and did not line or grease it).
In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment or in a large bowl if using a handheld mixer, cream together the butter and sugars on medium speed until light and fluffy, about 2-3 minutes.
Turn the mixer down to low and add the egg and vanilla until well combined. Then add the baking powder and flour until just combined. Turn the mixer off and fold in the butterscotch chips by hand.
Transfer the batter to your prepared baking pan and bake in your preheated oven for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown. Allow the bars to cool completely before slicing and serving.
Leftover bars should be stored in an airtight container at room temperature and will keep for at least a week.
