  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). In a medium saucepan over medium heat, melt butter and butterscotch chips. Stir frequently until smooth then stir one cup of the sugar, remove from heat and stir in the vanilla. Set aside. Grease a 9x13 inch pan.
  2. In a medium bowl, whip eggs with remaining 1 cup of sugar until thick and pale, about 3 minutes. Slowly add the butterscotch mixture to the eggs while mixing. Combine the flour and salt; fold into the batter until absorbed. Spread the mixture evenly into the prepared pan.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes, or until firm. Allow to cool completely before cutting into squares.

This recipe was terrible. I wonder if the creator even tried it before they posted it. The mixture was very runny. I added and xtra cup of flour, and it was still too runny. I baked it for o...

This didn't turn out for me either. Even with 10 minutes more for baking, the filling was the consistency of a pie filling and the bars had to be eaten with a fork. The outside edges of the pa...

A good, sweet dessert that's easy to make and great for potlucks!

Wow this recipe is messed up! If you follow the directions, you get burnt on the outside and a runny mess on the inside. Not recommended to try.
