  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.

I don't know what happened on this recipe. I followed the directions exactly and I ended up having to cook it 45 minutes longer than what the recipe said. It still was not quite done after all that time. I wish it would have turned out because the outer edges(that were cooked but hard as a rock) tasted very good. I might try it again and increase the temp. of the oven.


Same thing happened to me. The outsides were yummy, but the insides were undercooked and mushy.


I think I did something wrong when making this recipe. The batter was really runny, and when it came out of the oven, it was the consistency of butterscotch pudding. It was still really tasty, though. :-) I scaled the recipe down, so maybe something got lost in the translation. I don't know. I might try making it again with the recipe as is, because the taste of the batter was yummy!
